ABSTRACT A computer-based safety training (CBT) for semiconductor industry using web as the platform was developed. The CBT system is called Sistem Latihan Keselamatan Berasaskan Komputer (SLK). The CBT system has two main sections which are safety theory modules and accident prevention scenarios. The survey conducted in semiconductor industry concluded that 86.7% of the respondents have successfully increased their safety awareness and understanding towards safety at workplace after studying the SLK system. The highest increment is about 46 % and the lowest is about 8%. SLK system was found to be a practical tool in the selected semiconductor industry and has successfully increased the awareness of safety procedures as well as the understanding of good working practices.

    ABSTRACT: The main aim of this paper is to discuss the design issues and implications that relate to the use of software agents in Training Systems. We have designed and implemented a Radiotherapy Treatment Planning Learning Environment (called RATAPLAN), which incorporates an interface intelligent agent to support training of Simulation Technologists and Radiation Physicists in this knowledge domain. The learning environment consists of an interactive simulation. The interface agent (called Consulta) acts both as demonstrator and assistant to the users. The paper describes in depth the agent's architecture and illustrates the agent–user interaction and communication. With Consulta we promote the collaboration between novice and expert practitioners in Radiotherapy Treatment Planning.

    ABSTRACT: The Process Safety Management (PSM) regulations as specified by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in the code of federal regulations Chapter 29 Section 1910.119 (29 CFR 1910.119 ) requires employers to meet certain documentation and training requirements. A computer based system to meet both documentation and training requirement is proposed.

    ABSTRACT: The closing years of the 20th Century were associated with the advent of affordable Windows-based technologies for popular computer configurations, from powerful PCs in the home to workstations for small business communities. Such machines are readily capable of exploiting the power of real-time interactive 3D computer graphics, popularly referred to asvirtual reality (VR). VR has rapidly evolved into a technology that today offers a cost-effective means of supporting the development of human skills in all manner of applications, from automotive engineering to defence, surgery to education, retail, petrochemical exploration, and heritage to micro-robotics. This paper reviews some of the important human performance results to emerge from the academic and commercial application of VR technologies, and notes some ergonomic issues to be resolved in developing techniques for training and performance assessment that can be used cheaply and efficiently in industrial settings.
