    In order for a fire to occur, four things must be present: oxygen, fuel, heat and a

    • A.

      Stiff Breeze

    • B.

      Chemical Chain Reaction

    • C.

    Explanation
    A fire requires four elements to occur: oxygen, fuel, heat, and a chemical chain reaction. While oxygen provides the necessary oxidizer, fuel supplies the material to burn, and heat is the energy source, the chemical chain reaction is what initiates and sustains the fire. This reaction involves the breaking and forming of chemical bonds, releasing energy in the form of heat and light. Without this chain reaction, the other elements alone cannot sustain a fire.

    When working at heights, at what distance is fall protection required?

    • A.

      6 ft. measured from the worker's waist

    • B.

      6 ft. measured from the top of the worker's head

      6 ft. measured from the worker's feet

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. 6 ft. measured from the worker's feet
    Explanation
    Fall protection is required when working at heights at a distance of 6 ft. measured from the worker's feet. This means that any time a worker is working at a height of 6 ft. or more above the ground, they must have fall protection measures in place to prevent them from falling and potentially getting injured. This could include using safety harnesses, guardrails, or safety nets, among other safety equipment and procedures.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    What should be checked prior to donning fall protection?

    • A.

      Inspect for rips, tears and burns

    • B.

      Check the guard rail strength

    • C.

      None of the above

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Inspect for rips, tears and burns
    Explanation
    Prior to donning fall protection, it is important to inspect for rips, tears, and burns. This is necessary to ensure that the fall protection equipment is in good condition and will effectively protect against falls. Inspecting for any damages or signs of wear and tear is crucial to prevent any potential failures or accidents while working at heights. Checking the guard rail strength is not directly related to donning fall protection, so it is not necessary in this context. Therefore, the correct answer is to inspect for rips, tears, and burns.

      A space not designed for continuous employee occupancy

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above

    Compressed gases present unique hazards. Some of the potential hazards are:

    • A.

      Can become a "projectile" if the valve stem is damaged

    • B.

      Explosive

    • C.

      Poisonous

      Corrosive

    • E.

      All of the Above

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the Above
    Explanation
    Compressed gases can indeed become projectiles if the valve stem is damaged, as the pressure inside the container can cause it to forcefully release the gas. They can also be explosive, as some gases are highly flammable and can ignite under certain conditions. Additionally, compressed gases can be poisonous, as inhaling certain gases can be harmful or even fatal. Lastly, some compressed gases can be corrosive, meaning they have the ability to cause damage or destruction to materials they come into contact with. Therefore, all of the hazards mentioned in the options - becoming a projectile, being explosive, poisonous, and corrosive - are potential risks associated with compressed gases.
