Geological and mining employees working on coal mining projects are vulnerable to accidents involving powered haulage equipment, and their safety is dependent on effective safety programs. It has been demonstrated that virtual reality training programs facilitate participants to recognize the hazards present in the workplace, but their efficacy in preventing accidents has not been proven. This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of the training programs, not only for improving geologists' and miners' awareness of the hazards inherent in mining and transportation operations but also for teaching them how to avoid being harmed by them. To achieve this goal, several geology and mining workers in Texas received virtual reality training, and their knowledge was assessed before and after the training, based upon six questions that were relevant to the training's subject matter. Their responses were descriptively evaluated, and the results revealed a substantial increase in their knowledge after the virtual reality training. The outcomes of this study will guide policymakers in developing and implementing safety procedures that will protect the well-being of geologists and other miners who operate or work around power haulage equipment.
