Focus Four Hazards: Falls, Caught-in/between, Struck-by, and Electrocution.

Construction safety is one of OSHA's top concerns. Construction is among the most dangerous industries in the country and construction inspections comprise 60% of OSHA's total inspections.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that each year there are more fatalities in the construction industry than in any other single industry sector: nearly one out of every five work-related deaths in the U.S.

Private industry construction workers have a fatal occupational injury rate nearly three times that of all workers in the United States.

This four-hour course covers the first of four topics required in OSHAcademy's "Focus Four" topics in the OSHAcademy 10-Hour Safety Training Program for Construction.

The course describes basic hazards associated with falls; being caught in or between objects; being struck by objects; and electrocution. It also discusses the protective measures workers can take to prevent fatalities, injuries, and illnesses from exposure to these hazards.

Course 812 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.
