    Approach hazards from____, ____, and ____

    Correct Answer(s)
    Uphill Upwind Upstream, Uphill Upstream Upwind, Upwind Uphill Upstream, Upwind Upstream Uphill, Upstream Uphill Upwind, Upstream Upwind Uphill
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Uphill, Upwind, Upstream". When approaching hazards, it is important to consider the direction of uphill, upwind, and upstream. Uphill refers to hazards that are located at a higher elevation, which may pose additional risks such as falling debris. Upwind refers to hazards that are located in the direction from which the wind is blowing, which is important to avoid inhaling harmful substances or gases. Upstream refers to hazards that are located in the direction opposite to the flow of a river or stream, which is crucial to prevent being carried away by the current. By considering these factors, individuals can approach hazards in a safer manner.

    C. Starting point for determining if a package's integrity has been breached
    Explanation
    The Transport Index (TI) serves as a starting point for determining if a package's integrity has been breached. It is not related to radioactive levels or a radioactive transportation label system. Instead, it provides crucial information about the potential risk associated with transporting radioactive materials. By calculating the TI, one can assess whether the package has been compromised and if any radioactive material has been released. Therefore, the correct answer is that the TI is the starting point for determining if a package's integrity has been breached.
