The (unabridged) PDF versions of the federal code (vs the HTML versions linked below), are the only way to get a detailed subject index of the (subpart) code sections. You can use the web site to search for a subject, but this will not help you during an exam.
If you print sections of the code to take with you to the exam, they will probably be confiscated unless specifically called out in the list of “Allowed” study materials in an OPEN BOOK exam.
If you're taking an exam that does not use a third party testing company, or you’re applying for a license in a state that tells you to obtain Title 29, Part 1926 from the Government Printing Office (GPO), it may be very difficult to figure out which sub-sections of the OSHA code apply to your exam.
If you’re taking an exam administered by PSI, you will find that they publish their own version of the federal code sections that apply to construction titled as “29 CFR Part 1926 Selections 2013”. The PSI bulletin says “latest available amendments”, however, the “current” PSI published version is (grossly) out-of-date.
In newer bulletin versions, PSI is recommending the MANCOMM book below as an alternate. We recommend that you order the MANCOMM book which has the latest OSHA code.
In the case of both books being listed in a bulletin (and we have a practice exam available), we will let you know which publication our questions are based at the bottom of web pages in the product description.
As of Feb. 2022, we are in the process of creating a MANCOMM-specific version of the OSHA questions (approx. 800) we already have and will include both versions with purchased files.
