This paper discusses the challenges in the development of a Virtual Reality simulator to train and to assess the risk perception among maintenance technicians using the UDK game engine. The project involves a multidisciplinary team from different areas and the design of transparent 3D user interfaces. Such simulator can be a great tool to reduce accidents and costs, since accidents in power distribution operations are frequently caused by behavioral deviations. We present the initial experiments, showing a positive reaction from the users when they see their own limbs. The results indicate that the system provides a reasonable feeling of presence, already at the current stage of development.
