Course Introduction

This is the second of a two-part introduction to offshore safety practices. Offshore oil and gas operations include all activities involved in the extraction of crude oil and natural gas from reservoirs found beneath the seafloor.

The 11 lives lost in the 2010 Deepwater Horizon explosion provide a reminder of the hazards involved in offshore drilling.

This course has been developed as a source of information and practical training tool for offshore rig safety personnel, operator/contractor employees, supervisors, and managers who need to be familiar with offshore rig safety.

Once you complete this training, you will know more about the following components:

  • how to protect yourself against electrical shock and other injuries involving electricity on an oil rig
  • how to develop and maintain an effective Safety and Environmental Management System specifically for off-shore drilling rigs
  • proper lockout/tagout (LOTO) practices and procedures to protect workers tools and equipment safety
  • crane operator qualifications and safety precautions
  • control of hazardous chemicals and how to prepare for an emergency involving hazardous chemicals
  • important procedures to assist in handling materials, rigging, and lifting safety to make for safer and less risky environment for workers and equipment

Note: The use of the term "must" in source documents 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 mandatory regulatory requirements detailed in source documents.

Course 909 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 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 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.
