CSCS Practice Test on Respiratory Risks

As of April 2012, a new section termed “Respiratory Risks” was added to the CSCS Health and Safety Test. Just like the CSCS practice test below, you will have to answer a series of multiple-choice questions. This section focuses on highlighting how simple everyday tasks can affect your respiratory system in the long term if safety procedures are not followed.
