The Certified Safety and Health Examination Practice Items are intended to familiarize prospective examinees with the style and format of the CSHM examination questions. There are 36 objective practice items contained in this Guide, whereas the actual CSHM examination contains 150 objective items. The 150 test items will have the following weighted breakdown.
- Management and Leadership Principles and Methods (21% of test/32 questions)
- Risk Identification, Management and Control (35% of test/52 questions)
- EHS Operations, Programs and Applications (28% of test/42 questions)
- Incident Investigation and Performance Evaluation (16% of test/24 questions)
Exams administered outside the United States will be in US English. Exam questions for candidates in this category will contain fewer questions that pertain only to the United States (i.e. OSHA, NIOSH, etc.)
None of these practice items will be found on the actual CSHM certification examination. These practice items are only meant to be representative of the type of items found on the certification examination. Following the practice items is a quick scoring key and the rationales for the answers.
Remember to select the BEST answer. Good luck!
