The 3D models of safety tools were created as part of the research of James L. Jenkins in collaboration with the Envision Center, Purdue University. They were developed as part of the virtual reality (VR) simulation safety training for the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), U.S. Department of Labor funded by the Susan Harwood Training Grant Program, grant number SH-31215-SH7. It does not necessarily reflect the views or policies of the U.S. Department of Labor, nor does mention of trade names, commercial products, or organizations imply endorsement by the U.S. Government.
The purpose of the models was to help workers better learn and retain safety training materials in a more effective and interactive way. The 3D models follow OSHA specifications.
The dataset contains a model and textures.
