    What do you do if you discover a fire?(Select the correct answer)

    • A.

      Spend 30 min looking for your supervisor who will know what to do

    • B.

      Run down the corridor shouting "Fire! Fire! we're all going to die!"

    • C.

      Activate the nearest fire alarm call point and evacuate the building

    • D.

      Attempt to extinguish the fire

    Correct Answer
    C. Activate the nearest fire alarm call point and evacuate the building
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to activate the nearest fire alarm call point and evacuate the building. This is the appropriate response when discovering a fire because it alerts others in the building to the danger and allows for a prompt evacuation. Attempting to extinguish the fire oneself can be dangerous and should be left to trained professionals. Spending time looking for a supervisor or panicking by shouting about the fire are not effective or safe actions to take in an emergency situation.

    During a fire alarms, ways to evacuate safely are:(Choose the 3 correct answers)

    • A.

      Use the lifts

    • B.

      Use the stairs

    • C.

      Remain calm

    • D.

      Panic and run up and down the corridor

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Use the stairs
    C. Remain calm
    D. Do not waste time collecting your belongings
    Explanation
    During a fire alarm, it is important to use the stairs instead of the lifts because the lifts may not be safe or operational during a fire. Remaining calm is crucial as panic can lead to poor decision-making and hinder evacuation efforts. It is advised not to waste time collecting belongings as the priority should be to evacuate quickly and safely. Running up and down the corridor in a panicked manner is not a safe or effective way to evacuate during a fire.

    • D.

      Tissues

    Correct Answer
    C. Clean broken and unbroken glass
    Explanation
    Red bins are designated for the disposal of clean broken and unbroken glass. This is because red is a commonly recognized color for glass recycling bins. By separating glass waste in red bins, it becomes easier to identify and sort glass materials for recycling purposes. This helps to prevent contamination and ensures that glass waste can be properly recycled and reused in the future.

    • D.

      By bringing it home

    Correct Answer
    C. As Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) through Facilities Management
    Explanation
    Any electrical or electronic equipment should be disposed of as Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) through Facilities Management. This means that it should not be thrown in the domestic waste bin or left in the corridor or lift bay. Instead, it should be properly managed and disposed of through the designated Facilities Management process for handling electronic waste. Bringing it home is also not a suitable option for disposal.

    • D.

      On safety Inspection day

    Correct Answer
    C. From January to June every Wednesday from 14.00
    Explanation
    Annual Safety Inspections take place from January to June every Wednesday from 14.00. This means that during this time period, inspections are conducted every Wednesday at 14.00. The inspections are done on a regular basis and follow a specific schedule, allowing for thorough safety checks to be carried out.

    • D.

      Ask the Safety Officer to rectify the non-conformities

    Correct Answer
    B. Rectify all the non-conformities. This will be checked in a re-inspection 2 weeks after the report has been sent
    Explanation
    If the Safety Inspection Report for my area highlights non-conformities, the correct action to take is to rectify all the non-conformities. This is necessary because non-conformities indicate areas where safety standards are not being met, and addressing them is crucial for maintaining a safe environment. Additionally, a re-inspection will be conducted two weeks after the report has been sent to ensure that the non-conformities have been rectified. Ignoring the non-conformities, solving only some problems, or asking the Safety Officer to rectify them are not appropriate actions in this situation.

    When a user is being trained, their competence must be assessed by the trainer in order to sign off the training record

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    Correct Answer
    A. Your forearms are approximately horizontal above your work surface and your knees are bent at 90°
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that your forearms are approximately horizontal above your work surface and your knees are bent at 90°. This is because having your forearms at a horizontal position helps to maintain proper posture and reduce strain on your wrists and shoulders while working. Additionally, having your knees bent at a 90° angle helps to promote good blood circulation and prevent discomfort or fatigue in your legs.

    Your desk chair should be narrow so that you are sitting tightly with pressure applied to your thighs

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The explanation for the answer "False" is that your desk chair should not be narrow. A narrow chair would not provide enough space for you to sit comfortably and could lead to discomfort or pain. It is important to have a chair that is wide enough to support your body and allow for proper circulation. Sitting tightly with pressure applied to your thighs can restrict blood flow and cause discomfort or numbness. Therefore, a narrow chair is not recommended.

This is because when the armrests are too low, your arms are not properly supported, causing your shoulders to hunch forward and your neck to strain as you try to reach for the desk or keyboard. This can lead to discomfort and pain in the back and neck area.
