In chemical plants, safety measures are needed in order to minimize the impact of severe accidents and natural disasters. At the same time, carrying out the education and training to workers the corresponding operation in nonstationary situation is essential. However, reproducing the nonstationary conditions to actual equipment or mock-up cannot be performed because it is dangerous. By using the virtual reality (VR) technology, we can build up a virtual chemical plant with lower cost compared

Therefore, in this paper, we propose an experienced-based safety training system for implementing the education and training by using the non-stationary situation in the computer. This proposed system is linked with the dynamic plant simulator. A trainee can learn the correct operation through the simulated experience to prevent an accident. The safety awareness of workers will improve by experiential learning. The proposed system is useful for safety education in chemical plant.
