Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)



Companies in the onshore Oil and Gas Industry operate and/or develop oil and gas fields as a part of upstream oil and gas activities, sometimes referred to as exploration and production. Such activities may include:

  • Exploring for crude petroleum and natural gas;
  • Drilling, completing, servicing and equipping wells;
  • Operating separators, emulsion breakers, de-silting equipment, and field gathering lines for crude petroleum and natural gas; and
  • Performing other activities in preparing oil and gas up to the point of shipment from the producing property.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the oil and gas extraction industry has an annual occupational fatality rate of 27.5 per 100,000 workers (2003-2009) - more than seven times higher than the rate for all U.S. workers.

This course was developed as a source of information and practical training tool for rig workers to conduct effective safety inspections of on-shore drilling rigs to reduce the injury and illness rate and to help companies operate more efficiently. The course will also help the student develop an effective Rig Safety Inspection Program for tools and equipment commonly found on rotary and workover rigs. Each inspection topic includes instructions for assessing and recording the condition of the equipment.

Course 904 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.
