Applicants must also complete the official application. It is essential that applicants provide complete information in identifying their education, experience and training. The Minimum Qualification Supplemental Questionnaire will be used to evaluate if the applicant possesses the required minimum qualifications.

Written Multiple-Choice Examination (Weight: 66%):

Candidates who meet the minimum qualifications will be invited to participate in a written, multiple-choice examination, designed to measure their relative knowledge, skills and abilities in job-related areas that include, but are not limited to: knowledge of occupational safety principals, procedures, and standard practices necessary to develop, coordinate and monitor safety and incidents; knowledge of local, state and federal regulations and procedures which establish legal occupational, safety, or workers compensation requirements; knowledge of applications and limitations of personal protective equipment to ensure workers safety; ability to read, interpret, and apply technical information provided in regulatory manuals such as federal and state OSHA regulations; ability to identify casual factors and hazards when evaluating work operations and incidents; ability to analyze data, identify trends and prepare reports; ability to analyze safety factors to rank hazards in order of highest risk; ability to utilize computer functions and software programs to implement effective loss control programs.

Qualified candidates will be notified of the type of exam format in their exam appointment notification. This is a standardized multiple-choice examination. In accordance with Civil Service Rule 111.11.4, inspection privileges do not apply to the questions and answers in this examination.

The score you achieve on this examination shall be valid and "banked" for three years, starting from the date of the examination. This means that, during this three-year time period, you will not be required to take this test again should you apply and be found eligible for a future announcement for which this particular test is used.

Re-testing is permitted no sooner than one year from the date of the examination and only in association with your eligibility for another announcement for which this test is used.

Conviction History

As a selected candidate for a job, you will be fingerprinted, and your fingerprints will be sent to the California Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The resulting report of your conviction history (if any) will be used to determine whether the nature of your conviction (or arrest, in limited circumstances) conflicts with the specific duties and responsibilities of the job for which you are a selected candidate. If a conflict exists, you will be asked to present any evidence of rehabilitation that may mitigate the conflict, except when federal or state regulations bar employment in specific circumstances, such as:

  • Candidates for positions with the Unified School District and the Community College District may be disqualified from consideration should their conviction history not meet the standards established under the California Education Code.
  • Candidates for positions with the Recreation and Park Department may be disqualified from consideration should their conviction history not meet the standards established under California Public Resources Code 5164.

Having a conviction history does not automatically preclude you from a job with the City.

If you are a selected candidate, the hiring department will contact you to schedule a fingerprinting appointment.
