The implementation of safety training is conducted to provide knowledge on the importance of safety for its employees. However, the implementation of safety training requires many consumable things such as a lot of Portable Fire Extinguishers (PFE) that increase the operational cost and trigger the environmental pollution. This research aims to design a safety simulation based on VR (virtual reality) to provide an immersive experience for safety training and reduce the training costs. It was obtained that the application of VR technology requires two main devices namely HMD (Head-Mounted Display) and controller. Observations were conducted in the training of conventional safety and health at shipyards and training institutes. This research only simulates training on the use of PFE, fire drill, and risk observation on confined space from the ten topics of safety training based on observations that have been undertaken. Software such as Inventor, Microsoft Visual Studio, and Unity were used. After safety simulations was conducted, the result showed that safety training used VR can improve the work safety theory knowledge by 14.05%. Total cost of investment required for the development and equipment was IDR 24,043,667. The reduced cost of the safety training using VR was about IDR 193,889,154.88 or 68.13%.
