Abstract: Its known that 95 % of occupational accidents are caused by unsafe human behavior. Therefore, in order to prevent occupational accidents, various human resource education is implemented in each company, but due to the rut that accompanies continuation, many of them are only aimed at preventing serious accidents in steady state. Furthermore, since it takes time and manpower to conduct education, there is also a problem that these educational methods are not effectively utilized in the field. For example, in recent years, a method of supporting risk prediction using VR in high-place work has been considered, but it costs a lot of money to introduce it, and people who have little experience in the first place have the problem that it feels like a game. Merely continuing such a stereotyped education will not improve learning through experience, and it will be difficult to develop outstanding human resources with awareness. Furthermore, for those who have little experience in the field, even if they acquire knowledge through classroom lectures and group work, it is difficult to use it in the field and predict danger. Developing experienced and excellent human resources who can notice on-site is an urgent issue for the future of the company. Therefore, in this research, by investigating various conventional educational methods and sorting out their strengths and weaknesses, we will clarify the reasons why these educational methods are not being used in the field, improve the weaknesses, and improve the actual field. We propose a failure event virtual experience-based l learning method that replaces the field experience.In this study, we decided to measure the effect of the proposed learning method from the degree of awareness in the accident prevention activities carried out in Japanese companies. The reason for this is that in order to further improve the effectiveness of current safety education, it is most practical to measure awareness during activities that are actually carried out in the field, and it is not possible to measure with paper tests or questionnaires. Therefore, based on the characteristics of on-site workers, we decided to examine methods to improve their awareness and willingness to participate in safety activities. Furthermore, we decided to conduct an analysis based on an evaluation experiment to see if the subject's awareness improved by receiving the proposed educational method prior to the safety activities.
