Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Safety Committee
Safety committees help develop world-class safety cultures.


OSHA recommends the use of safety committees and they are required by approximately 14 "State Plan" OSHA agencies. Safety committees can provide substantial benefits to companies and other organizations. Unfortunately, some established safety committees do not understand their purpose or proper role as an internal consultant group that can assist management in providing an effective safe and healthful workplace.

This course helps the student understand his/her responsibilities as a safety committee member. It will also help the safety committee chairperson successfully lead a safety team and develop a world-class safety culture. This course is part of the OSHAcademy 32-Hour Safety Committee Member Program and 36-Hour Safety Committee Chair Program.

Course 701 Final Exam

Exam score sheet

After studying the course material and answering the quiz questions, it is time to take the final exam. We highly recommend answering the module quiz questions to check your understanding of the course material. The final exam questions are typically developed from these quiz questions.

OSHAcademy course final exams are designed to make sure students have gained a sufficient understanding of the content covered within each course. To help demonstrate this understanding, students must achieve a passing score on course final exams. It is OSHAcademy's policy to protect the integrity of our exams: as a result, we do not provide missed questions to students.

This is an open book exam. Students are permitted to use a separate browser window to review course content while taking the exam. If you do not pass a final exam, you will see a "Retake Exam" button next to the course on your student dashboard.

If you have already paid for your certificate

If you have already paid for certificates, your exam score will be displayed on your student dashboard after successfully passing the final exam. If you chose PDF certificates, you can view and print your certificate and personal transcript from your student dashboard. If you chose original printed documents, they will be prepared and mailed to the address in your student account.

If you only want free training

OSHAcademy provides free access to all training materials, including course modules, practice quizzes, exercises, and final exams. However, exam scores, certificates, and transcripts are provided only if you purchase a certificate package to document your training. If you do not require official training documentation, we will archive your exam results should you decide to purchase official certificates later.
