Free Safety and Health Quizzes

The OSHAtest.net web sit offers free online safety and health quizzes. The quizzes are professional, they have appropriate questions, and the web site works well. They were created by a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) and a Certified Safety Professional (CSP).  The web site is solely dedicated to the safety quizzes. Other than a few Google ads, there are no other promotions.  The site offers to provide a certificate, for each safety quiz that is passed, for a $10 fee.
  • The safety quizzes are free
  • The safety quizzes are regulatory based.
  • The level of difficulty is moderate-to-high.
  • You can take any test as many times as you want.
  • You can see your result/score and review the correct answers at the end of each quiz.
  • The safety quiz will generate an auto-email on completion - you can either ignore it, direct it to yourself to keep a record of test, or allow it to be sent to us.
The topics covered by these safety quizzes include:

Excavations
Portable Ladders

Where can I get the OSHA rules for roofing fall protection. Many of the guys are wearing fall protection on the roofs but it's just a show. They usually have enough slack in the rope to hit the ground and maybe a few extra feet. I need a good video to get these guys back on track. Thanks

Roofing Maine - thank you for your question.

The OSHA fall protection standard is: 1926.501

You can read the OSHA standard covering fall protection (includes roofing) at: http://www.osha.gov/pls/oshaweb/owadisp.show_document?p_id=10757&p_table=STANDARDS

The section that applies is:

1926.501(b)(13)

"Residential construction." Each employee engaged in residential construction activities 6 feet (1.8 m) or more above lower levels shall be protected by guardrail systems, safety net system, or personal fall arrest system unless another provision in paragraph (b) of this section provides for an alternative fall protection measure. Exception: When the employer can demonstrate that it is infeasible or creates a greater hazard to use these systems, the employer shall develop and implement a fall protection plan which meets the requirements of paragraph (k) of 1926.502.

Note: There is a presumption that it is feasible and will not create a greater hazard to implement at least one of the above-listed fall protection systems. Accordingly, the employer has the burden of establishing that it is appropriate to implement a fall protection plan which complies with 1926.502(k) for a particular workplace situation, in lieu of implementing any of those systems.

It sounds as though you are using fall protection, but your workers are not using it properly. As an employer you are expected by OSHA to train your employees to use the necessary safety equipment, and ensure that they do use it.
