      "3000lb"

    • B.

    • C.

      "5000lb"

    • D.

      "6000lb"

    Correct Answer
    C. "5000lb"
    Explanation
    The minimum breaking strength of a vertical lifeline is typically determined by industry standards and regulations. It is important for the lifeline to be strong enough to support the weight of a person in the event of a fall. The correct answer of "5000lb" suggests that this is the minimum breaking strength required for a vertical lifeline to ensure safety and prevent accidents.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    True or False, A horizontal lifeline allows workers to move up and down on a working surface?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A horizontal lifeline does not allow workers to move up and down on a working surface. It is a safety device that is used to protect workers from falling while they are working at heights. It consists of a cable or line that is securely attached to anchor points on either side of the working area. Workers can attach themselves to the lifeline using a harness and lanyard, which allows them to move horizontally along the line, but not vertically.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    If there are two types of Life Lines and one is known as Horizontal, what is the other type?

    Correct Answer
    Vertical
    Explanation
    The other type of life line, when one is known as horizontal, is vertical. Horizontal and vertical are two common orientations used to describe the position or direction of lines, objects, or movements. In this case, the question is asking for the other type of life line, and since one type is already identified as horizontal, the logical answer would be vertical.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    A worker is 6ft tall and he is working 12ft. above the ground and is using a 4ft.lanyard with a shock absorber which has a deceleration distance of 3.5ft. If the worker were to fall will he be okay or will he hit the ground? 

    • A.

      "Yes, he would be okay"

    • B.

      "No, he would hit the ground"

    Correct Answer
    B. "No, he would hit the ground"
    Explanation
    The worker is 6ft tall and is working 12ft above the ground. He is using a 4ft lanyard with a shock absorber that has a deceleration distance of 3.5ft. In the event of a fall, the shock absorber will only decelerate the fall by 3.5ft, which is less than the distance between the worker and the ground (12ft). Therefore, the worker will not be able to stop the fall in time and will hit the ground.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

     Is this definition correct? Does a restraint system prevent a worker from reaching a location where there is a risk of falling?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A fall restraint system only keeps you from hitting the ground, but does not prevent you from falling.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Which of these are part of the fall protection work plan? (Check all that apply)

    • A.

      Description of system used

    • B.

      Description of equipment

    • C.

      Identification of fall hazards

    • D.

      Serial number of all fall protection equipment.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Description of system used
    B. Description of equipment
    C. Identification of fall hazards
    Explanation
    The fall protection work plan should include a description of the system used, which refers to the specific fall protection measures and equipment in place. It should also include a description of the equipment, which provides details about the type and specifications of the fall protection equipment being used. Additionally, the plan should identify fall hazards, which involves identifying potential areas or situations where falls may occur. However, the serial number of all fall protection equipment is not typically included in the fall protection work plan.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    If you have been trained and worked in the industry for years, sometimes you can work unclipped, but only if you have been certified?

    • A.

      TRUE

    • B.

      FALSE

    Correct Answer
    B. FALSE
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that if someone has been trained and worked in the industry for years, they can work unclipped. However, the statement also states that this is only possible if they have been certified. Therefore, the correct answer is FALSE because being certified is a requirement for working unclipped, regardless of the training and experience one may have.

    • D.

      40%

    Correct Answer
    C. 30%
    Explanation
    Falls are responsible for 30% of construction fatalities. This means that out of all the fatalities that occur in the construction industry, 30% of them are a result of falls. Falls are a significant risk in construction due to working at heights, such as on scaffolding or ladders, and the lack of fall protection measures. This statistic highlights the importance of implementing proper safety measures and training to prevent falls and protect workers in the construction industry.
