          Appropriate level of protect for the Hazmat Tech when dealing with and unknown product is

    • A.

      Level A

    • B.

      Level B

    • C.

      Level C

    • D.

      Level D

    Correct Answer
    A. Level A
    Explanation
    The appropriate level of protection for a Hazmat Tech when dealing with an unknown product is Level A. Level A protection is the highest level of protection and is used when there is a high level of respiratory and skin protection required. This level includes a fully encapsulated suit with a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) to protect against chemical exposure. It is necessary to use Level A protection when dealing with an unknown product to ensure the safety of the Hazmat Tech and prevent any potential harm or exposure to hazardous materials.

          Methods for determining the amount of lading remaining in damaged bulk packaging or facility containers include: Shipping papers, Frost line, Gauging devices, and

    • A.

      Calculations based on estimated amount of product spilled

    • B.

      Calculations based on COBRA

    • C.

      Container specific marking

    • D.

      ICs best guess

    Correct Answer
    C. Container specific marking
    Explanation
    Container specific marking is a method for determining the amount of lading remaining in damaged bulk packaging or facility containers. This involves looking at the markings on the container itself, such as fill lines or volume indicators, to estimate how much product is still inside. By referencing these markings, one can get a rough idea of the remaining amount of lading without relying on other methods like shipping papers or gauging devices.

          Two methods for predicting the areas of potential harm within the endangered area of a hazardous materials incident

    • A.

      Computer modeling / Senses

    • B.

      Computer modeling / Monitoring equipment

    • C.

      Monitoring equipment / Rain gauge

    • D.

      Both b & c

    Correct Answer
    B. Computer modeling / Monitoring equipment
    Explanation
    Computer modeling and monitoring equipment are two methods that can be used to predict the areas of potential harm within the endangered area of a hazardous materials incident. Computer modeling allows for the simulation and prediction of various scenarios, helping to identify potential areas of harm. Monitoring equipment, on the other hand, provides real-time data and measurements that can be used to assess the current conditions and identify areas of potential danger. By combining the capabilities of computer modeling and monitoring equipment, a more comprehensive understanding of the potential harm within the endangered area can be achieved.

          Selection factors to be considered in selecting the proper chemical protective clothing for a specific action include

    • A.

      Overall suit integrity

    • B.

      Materials chemical resistance

    • C.

      Materials physical property

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above". When selecting the proper chemical protective clothing for a specific action, it is important to consider all of the selection factors mentioned, including overall suit integrity, materials chemical resistance, and materials physical property. Overall suit integrity ensures that the clothing provides proper protection and does not have any defects or vulnerabilities. Materials chemical resistance is important to ensure that the clothing can withstand exposure to specific chemicals without degrading or allowing them to penetrate through. Materials physical property refers to the durability, flexibility, and comfort of the clothing, which can affect its effectiveness and user comfort.
