Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

 

Introduction

The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE), 30 CFR Part 250 Subpart S, Safety and Environmental Management Systems (SEMS II) program became effective on June 4, 2013. The Deepwater Horizon explosion and resulting oil spill highlighted potential faults in the existing OCS safety culture and the need for an improved SEMS.

The BSEE SEMS II rule is primarily a performance-based standard that details requirements and provides guidance for offshore operators to reduce the likelihood of another event like the Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill. The rule also exits to make sure that operations on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) are conducted:

deepwater
  • Safely by well-trained personnel
  • using technology, precautions, and techniques sufficient to prevent or minimize the likelihood of:
    • blowouts, loss of well control, fires, or spillage, physical obstruction to other users of the waters or subsoil and seabed
    • occurrences that may cause damage to the environment or to property
    • occurrences that endanger life or health

This course was developed as a source of information and practical training tool for offshore rig safety personnel and workers to develop and maintain an effective Safety and Environmental Management System specifically for off-shore drilling rigs. The course covers each of the sections within the SEMS II rule as they appear in the regulation. Additional guidance related to each of the topics is also included in the course.

Note: The use of the term “must” in the source document for this training has been replaced with the term “should” because the content of this training is guidance only and does not replace or serve as a substitute for the mandatory regulatory requirements of the source document.

Course 907 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.

If you have already paid for a Certificate Program

If you have already paid for your certificates, your exam score will be displayed in your student dashboard next to the course. You will also be able to view or print the course PDF certificate if you purchased this option. Your PDF transcript will also be automatically updated to include the course.

If you only want free training

You are welcome to take all of our courses for free! We only charge a fee if you want certificates, transcripts and exam scores to document your training. If you have not made a payment for your certificate, we will archive your exam results and you will see "Completed!" next to the course if you passed the exam. If you did not pass the exam with a score of 70% or higher, you will need to retake the exam.
