Tony Wojciechowski, CHRO/Director, Hyundai Power Transformers USA
Hyundai Power Transformers had an 800,000-pound problem: how to train workers to manufacture power transformers. These transformers, which can weigh 400 tons, require employees who are well-versed in all safety-related aspects of the equipment. Working with Alabama’s workforce development agency, AIDT, the manufacturer solved the problem with an innovative approach: virtual reality. Attend this session and learn how Hyundai Power Transformers and AIDT employed hands-on simulation-based training to teach workers the skills they needed to do the job -- without the risks of injury equipment damage.
