Course Introduction

It's always time for effective recognition.
(Click to enlarge)

Effective recognition is one of the most important characteristics of a world-class safety culture. Everyone is "doing" safety, not because they have to, but because they want to. They know that safe behavior is considered professional behavior, and that's what top level managers are looking for.

Recognition by management and co-workers confirms an employee's work is valued by others. The result is that feelings of self-worth and belonging increase which, in turn, improves production and quality of services. All around, effective recognition has benefits to the employer. On the other hand, ineffective or improper recognition can have the opposite effect with serious negative consequences to the employer.

In this course, you'll learn about the basic concepts and principles of effective recognition, and the many ways you can apply effective recognition in the workplace.

Course 117 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.
