    C. In your toolbox until you need them
    Explanation
    Sharp tools should be kept in your toolbox until you need them. This is because keeping them in your pockets may pose a safety risk and can cause injuries. Storing them in your locker may not be convenient when you need them for immediate use. Additionally, scattering them on the top of your work table or on top of the lathe can lead to accidents or damage to the tools. Therefore, the safest and most practical option is to store sharp tools in a toolbox until they are needed.

    When watching a welder working, you should not look straight into the arc from the welder's torch as it can cause eye damage. Standing right next to them can be dangerous as it exposes you to potential hazards. Tapping them on the shoulder or dropping a heavy object behind them can startle or distract the welder, leading to accidents. Therefore, none of the above options are appropriate when watching a welder work.

This is important because MSDS sheets contain crucial information about the hazards, safe handling, and emergency procedures related to the chemicals. By logging and placing them in an MSDS Folder, it ensures that the sheets are easily accessible to employees who may need to refer to them for safety purposes. Additionally, keeping them in a designated folder helps in organizing and maintaining a record of all the MSDS sheets for future reference and compliance purposes.

This is because heat treating involves exposing the part to high temperatures, which can cause severe burns if touched directly. Using tongs provides a safe way to handle the hot part without risking injury. Wearing a safety shield further protects the eyes and face from any potential hazards that may arise during the heat treating process.

These burrs can cause injury to individuals handling the part or damage to other components. By checking for burrs, one can ensure that the part is smooth and safe to handle, reducing the risk of accidents or damage.

    When lifting material from the floor you should...

    • A.

      Jerk it up

    • B.

      Lift with your back

    • C.

      Lift with a strap

    • D.

      Lift with your legs

    • E.

      All the above

    Correct Answer
    D. Lift with your legs
    Explanation
    When lifting material from the floor, it is important to lift with your legs. This is because the muscles in your legs are larger and stronger than the muscles in your back, making them better equipped to handle the weight. Lifting with your legs also helps to maintain proper posture and reduces the strain on your back, decreasing the risk of injury. Jerking the material up or lifting with your back can lead to back injuries, while using a strap alone may not provide enough support. Therefore, the correct method is to lift with your legs.

    You should try to lift more than you can handle,

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that one should try to lift more weight than they are capable of handling. However, this is not true. It is important to lift weights that are appropriate for one's strength and ability in order to avoid injury. Pushing oneself too hard can lead to strain, muscle tears, or other physical harm. Therefore, the correct answer is false, as it is not advisable to lift more than one can handle.

    It is ok to throw water on a magnesium fire.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is not okay to throw water on a magnesium fire. Magnesium is a highly reactive metal that reacts violently with water, producing hydrogen gas and intense heat. This reaction can further fuel the fire and cause it to spread. Therefore, using water to extinguish a magnesium fire can be extremely dangerous and ineffective.
