Course Introduction

This course is created specifically for employees in an occupational safety and health setting. You will learn how to classify hazardous chemicals in your workplace and also how you can help create the workplace hazardous communications program to protect yourself and your co-workers.

There are two different types of hazardous material employees need to worry about: flammable and combustible liquids. These liquids are, in short, liquids that can burn. Personal protective equipment (PPE) is essential when working with these types of liquids. Skin and eye contact needs to be avoided. This course outlines the various types of PPE to protect you, as an employee.

Good housekeeping in your workplace is essential to help prevent slips, trips and falls. There are several components to protect yourself and your co-workers. You will learn how to plan ahead, assign responsibilities and implement a program to keep housekeeping part of the daily routine.

Workplace violence is emerging into a big problem in our society. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 requires employers to provide a safe and healthful working environment. If you recognize violence in your workplace, what can you do? You need to make sure your company has a workplace violence program in place to protect them.

You, as an employee, also need to be involved in creating a workplace safety and health program for your company. You play a crucial role in this responsibility. You can help review and improve the program and you can also volunteer to participate on the safety committee.

This course is designed to be taken with OSHAcademy’s program, “Occupational Safety and Health for the Employee.”

Course 601 Final Exam

Congratulations on finishing the coursework! To pass the exam, you must achieve a minimum score of 70%. It is OSHAcademy's policy to protect the integrity of our exams and, as a result, we do not provide missed questions to students. We do provide missed-question module section references for study should you wish to retake the exam.

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.
