Dtzone - Buffing Machine Safety Test - Quiz

A test related to the correct and safe use of a Buffing Machine also referred to as a Polishing Machine.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The Buffing Machine has two wheels, how many people can use the buffer at one time?

    • A.

      One

    • B.

      Two

    Correct Answer
    A. One
    Explanation
    The Buffing Machine has two wheels, but only one person can use the buffer at one time. This is because the machine is designed to be operated by a single user. Having two wheels does not mean that two people can use the machine simultaneously.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    The two wheels on the Buffer are for two different materials, what are these two materials?

    • A.

      Glass

    • B.

      Plastic

    • C.

      Metal

    • D.

      Wood

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Plastic
    C. Metal
    Explanation
    The Buffer has two wheels, each designed for different materials. One wheel is made for plastic, while the other is made for metal. This means that the Buffer can effectively polish and buff both plastic and metal surfaces.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which part of the buffing wheel should you use when polishing?

    • A.

      Any part is fine

    • B.

      The Upper portion of the wheel

    • C.

      The lower portion of the wheel

    • D.

      Directly in the middle of the wheel

    Correct Answer
    C. The lower portion of the wheel
    Explanation
    When polishing with a buffing wheel, it is recommended to use the lower portion of the wheel. This is because the lower portion of the wheel is in contact with the polishing compound, which helps to achieve a smoother and more polished finish. Using the lower portion allows for better control and precision in the polishing process.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Select the correct two pieces of safety equipment you must wear to operate the Buffing machine.

    • A.

      Dust Mask

    • B.

      Safety glasses/goggles

    • C.

      Apron

    • D.

      Gloves

    • E.

      Helmet

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Safety glasses/goggles
    C. Apron
    Explanation
    To operate the Buffing machine safely, it is necessary to wear safety glasses or goggles to protect the eyes from any flying debris or particles. Additionally, an apron should be worn to protect the body from any potential spills or splashes of chemicals or materials used in the buffing process. Wearing these two pieces of safety equipment ensures the operator's eyes and body are adequately protected during the operation of the Buffing machine.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    If both your hands are being used to hold the material you are polishing, how should you stop the buffer in an emergancy?

    • A.

      By removing one hand to press the stop button

    • B.

      By asking someone else to press the emergency stop button

    • C.

      By pressing the emergency stop button with your foot

    Correct Answer
    C. By pressing the emergency stop button with your foot
    Explanation
    In a situation where both hands are occupied with holding the material being polished, it would be impossible to use either hand to stop the buffer in an emergency. Therefore, the most viable option is to use another part of the body to press the emergency stop button. The foot is a suitable choice as it allows for quick and effective action without compromising safety. By pressing the emergency stop button with the foot, the buffer can be stopped promptly, preventing any potential accidents or injuries.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    True or False? Any other person waiting to use the Buffing Machine should wait within the yellow lines marked on the floor around the machine.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The correct answer is False because waiting within the yellow lines marked on the floor around the Buffing Machine is not necessary. The question is asking whether any other person waiting to use the machine should wait within the yellow lines, and the correct answer states that they do not need to wait within those lines.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    If you have not used the Buffer before what should you do?

    • A.

      Use it anyway, just be really careful

    • B.

      Get a class mate to show you how to use it

    • C.

      Ask the teacher to show you how to use it

    • D.

      Don't bother using it

    Correct Answer
    C. Ask the teacher to show you how to use it
    Explanation
    If you have not used the Buffer before, the best course of action would be to ask the teacher to show you how to use it. This is because the teacher is likely to have knowledge and experience with the Buffer and can provide proper guidance and instructions on how to use it effectively. Asking a classmate may not guarantee accurate information, and attempting to use it without any guidance may lead to mistakes or misuse. Therefore, seeking assistance from the teacher is the most appropriate option.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    If you see someone else have an accident on the Buffing Machine what should you do?

    • A.

      Press the nearest emergency stop button

    • B.

      Go over to the Buffer and turn it off

    • C.

      Tell the teacher

    • D.

      Ignore them and carry on with your work

    Correct Answer
    A. Press the nearest emergency stop button
    Explanation
    In case of witnessing an accident on the Buffing Machine, pressing the nearest emergency stop button is the correct action to take. This immediate response can help prevent further harm or injury to the person involved in the accident. By stopping the machine, the risk of any additional accidents or injuries can be minimized. It is crucial to prioritize safety and take prompt action in such situations.
