The Erasmus+ project PRO.D.I.G.Y aims to integrate augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) solutions to enhance workplace safety for people with disabilities. As the technical partner, Eugene Global LTD spearheaded the digital transformation of the framework developed by the project consortium.

Objectives and Framework

The primary objective of PRO.D.I.G.Y is to elevate the use of AR/VR technologies to aid people with disabilities, first responders, and companies during workplace emergencies. This initiative is crucial to ensure the safety and inclusion of people with disabilities in emergency response plans, addressing a significant gap often overlooked in traditional emergency planning.

Methodological Framework

The framework serves as a step-by-step guide to assist organisations in updating and strengthening their emergency plans to include considerations for people with disabilities. Key components of the framework include:

  1. Emergency Preparedness: Measures and actions taken in advance to mitigate possible destructive events.
  2. Emergency Response: Immediate actions post-event to control and minimise damage.
  3. Risk Management: Coordinated activities to direct and control an organisation regarding risk, including risk assessment and management plans.
  4. Crisis Management: Holistic processes that identify potential impacts threatening an organisation and provide a resilient response framework.

Digital Transformation by Eugene Global LTD

Eugene Global LTD played a crucial role in the digital transformation of the framework by providing an open learning platform for all users and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The modules are designed to train individuals with disabilities in emergency response, improving their preparedness and ensuring their safety during workplace emergencies.


The PRO.D.I.G.Y project promotes disability inclusion in workplace emergency preparedness using AR/VR technologies. It aims to create safer workplaces and provides tools for comprehensive emergency preparedness and response.
