Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

 

Introduction

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:

truck
  • 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

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.
