    Demands for maintaining and restoring process reliability reflect to industrial maintenance operations, which must be executed correctly and efficiently. More complicated machinery and subcontracting maintenance services rise new challenges for occupational safety, as maintenance workers must deal with varying operations and changing customer sites. To ensure occupational safety in maintenance operations, efficient training and instructing methods are required. For training such risky operations, virtual environments provide an effective and safe option. The article describes the setting of the virtual environment and its connections to product and production processes. In addition, a set of supportive analysis methods are proposed
