The diamond-shaped label consists of four colored sections that represent the level of health, flammability, reactivity, and special hazards of a material.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Operator had an accident with MHE." This is because when a forklift operator has an accident with a Material Handling Equipment (MHE), it is necessary for them to undergo refresher training. This training helps to reinforce the proper operating procedures and safety protocols to prevent future accidents and ensure the operator is competent and up to date with their skills.

    Explanation
    Forklift repairs cannot be done in any of these locations, including flammable gas areas, combustible dust areas, and areas with ignitable fibers.

    When lifting heavy loads, you should always

    • A.

      Lift objects with your back, not your legs

    • B.

      Carry a load that blocks your view of the hallway

    • C.

      Maintain the natural S-curve of your spine

    • D.

      Attempt to lift object that are too heavy to hand

    Correct Answer
    C. Maintain the natural S-curve of your spine
    Explanation
    When lifting heavy loads, it is important to maintain the natural S-curve of your spine. This means keeping your back straight and avoiding any excessive bending or twisting. By maintaining the natural curve, you distribute the weight evenly along your spine and reduce the risk of strain or injury. Lifting with your back instead of your legs can put excessive strain on your back muscles and lead to injury. Carrying a load that blocks your view of the hallway can increase the risk of accidents. Attempting to lift objects that are too heavy can also result in injury.

    Using an office chair to reach a high shelf is safe if the chair does not have wheels or casters.

    • A.

      False

    • B.

      True

    Correct Answer
    A. False
    Explanation
    Using an office chair to reach a high shelf is not safe even if the chair does not have wheels or casters. This is because office chairs are not designed to be stable platforms for climbing or reaching high places. They lack the necessary support and stability, increasing the risk of falling or injuring oneself. It is always recommended to use a proper step stool or ladder for reaching high shelves to ensure safety.

    A. False
    Explanation
    Leaning back to relax in an office chair is not always a safe practice. While it may temporarily alleviate stress and increase productivity for some individuals, it can also lead to poor posture and back pain if done excessively or without proper support. It is important to maintain proper ergonomics and take regular breaks from sitting to promote overall health and well-being.
