The Occupational Safety and Health Administration offers practice assessments in the full range of health and safety areas over which it has regulatory authority. These include assessments for individual employees regarding specific job requirements, and assessments for businesses to determine overall awareness and compliance with federal health and safety requirements.
Another resource is OSHAtest.net, which makes practice tests available across a range of topics, such as portable ladder safety and excavations. Each test is based on regulations of the U.S. OSHA. Some questions are specific to the United States, while others are universal in nature and broadly applicable. Each test has a link to the applicable regulations so the test-taker can confirm his answers. These tests are free and provide good refreshers. These exams supplement federally regulated training, but they are not a substitute for this training.
Practice assessments and training are also available at various colleges and universities, such as the OSHA Education Center at the University of San Diego Extension and the OSHA Training Institute at the University of South Florida.
The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 mandates and assesses employer and employee compliance with occupational health and safety standards to reduce job-related illnesses, injuries and deaths.
