Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Oil or grease in contact with __________ will cause and explosion.

    • A.

      A gas cylinder

    • B.

      Acetylene

    • C.

      Compressed oxygen

    • D.

      Combustible materials

    Correct Answer
    C. Compressed oxygen
    Explanation
    When oil or grease comes into contact with compressed oxygen, it can cause an explosion. This is because compressed oxygen supports combustion, making it highly reactive with flammable substances. When oil or grease mixes with oxygen under pressure, it increases the likelihood of ignition and can lead to a violent explosion. Therefore, it is crucial to prevent any oil or grease from coming into contact with compressed oxygen to ensure safety in industrial settings or any other environment where compressed oxygen is used.

      Petroleum products

    • D.

      Zing oxide fumes

    Correct Answer
    A. Ultraviolet light
    Explanation
    Flash burns are caused by exposing your eyes to ultraviolet light. Ultraviolet light is a type of radiation that is not visible to the human eye. When the eyes are exposed to high levels of ultraviolet light, such as from a welding torch or a bright flash, it can cause damage to the cornea and the retina. This can result in symptoms such as pain, redness, blurred vision, and sensitivity to light. It is important to protect the eyes from ultraviolet light by wearing appropriate eye protection, such as safety goggles or welding masks.

    A ___________ is attached to a cylinder valve to reduce the high cylinder pressure to the require lower working pressure.

    • A.

      Safety valve

    • B.

      Regulator

    • C.

      Torch assembly

    • D.

      Compression hose

    Correct Answer
    B. Regulator
    Explanation
    A regulator is attached to a cylinder valve to reduce the high cylinder pressure to the required lower working pressure. A regulator is a device that controls the flow and pressure of a gas or liquid. In this case, it is used to decrease the pressure from the cylinder to a level that is suitable for the intended application, ensuring safety and efficient operation.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    A confined space _____________..

    • A.

      Has a limited amount of ventilation

    • D.

      May be entered by untrained employees

    Correct Answer
    A. Has a limited amount of ventilation
    Explanation
    A confined space is a space that has limited ventilation, meaning there is not enough fresh air circulating in the area. This can be dangerous as it can lead to a lack of oxygen or the buildup of harmful gases, posing a risk to anyone entering the space. Therefore, it is important to take precautions and ensure proper ventilation when working in confined spaces to maintain a safe environment.

      Carbon tri-oxide

    • B.

      Carbon monoxide

    • C.

      Carbon dioxide

    • D.

      Carbon cyanide

    Correct Answer
    B. Carbon monoxide
    Explanation
    Carbon monoxide is a deadly gas that is produced as part of the exhaust of all internal combustion engines. It is odorless, tasteless, and invisible, making it difficult to detect without proper monitoring equipment. Carbon tri-oxide, carbon dioxide, and carbon cyanide are not gases typically produced by engines and do not pose the same level of danger as carbon monoxide.
