The progressive lowering of the hardware resources necessary for the creation of virtual reality environments creates new opportunities for the application of this technology in the field of training in occupational hazards. Equipment like HTC Vive and Oculus Rift allow with a reduced budget to create experiences with an important level of realism, in addition to a very interesting interaction capabilities. The use of this technology allows to face the subjects of training to situations that in real life would have an excessive level of risk to be experienced in person. Therefore, virtual reality can bring an approach to situations of risk that would not be otherwise viable. This is especially relevant, because the emotional imprint that can mean experiencing a first-person danger situation can be used as a reinforcement tool for those critical concepts related to a particular occupational hazard. The present work will analyse the characteristics and potential benefits that the technology of virtual reality can contribute in the field of the prevention of occupational risks.
