Welcome!

After a school building is constructed, it is important school district administrators keep a close eye on the quality of the buildings. New buildings tend to deteriorate quickly because of poor weather conditions and routine wear and tear. If administrators make maintenance a priority from the beginning, it could reduce large and expensive fixes in the future.

This course takes a closer look at the building and athletic field maintenance as well as providing ways to keep both students and staff safe both in parking lots and school buildings.

Course 571 Final Exam

OSHAcademy course final exams are designed to help ensure students demonstrate a sufficient understanding of the content covered within each course. To help demonstrate this understanding, students must achieve a minimum score of 70% on final exams. It is OSHAcademy's policy to protect the integrity of our exams and, as a result, we do not provide missed questions to students.

After you have studied all of the course material and taken the module quizzes, you can take the final exam. The module quizzes are optional, but we highly recommend you take each quiz, as the questions are similar to those on the final exam.

This is an open book exam. As you are taking the exam, if you find a question you are unsure of, you should use the course study guide or course web pages to research the correct answer. Don't worry if you fail the exam. You can study and retake the exam when you are ready.
