Effective safety committees are required in several states and provide substantial benefits to companies and other organizations. Unfortunately, most safety committees do not understand their purpose or the role they play in assisting management to provide a safe and healthful workplace. This course helps the student understand his/her responsibilities as a safety committee member. It will help the safety committee chairperson successfully lead a safety team and develop a world-class safety culture.
As an OSHAcademy student, you can access 100% of our training materials for free, including our module quizzes and course exams. We only charge a small fee if you decide to document your training with our official course certificates.
Safety committees are not required in all 50 states, but they should be, as they can be extremely helpful in making sure an effective safety culture is developed and maintained.

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 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.
