    B. Safety Glasses
    C. Gloves
    Explanation
    The correct answer includes "Safety Glasses" and "Gloves" as forms of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). PPE is equipment designed to protect the user against hazards in the workplace. Safety glasses protect the eyes from debris, chemicals, or other hazards, while gloves protect the hands from cuts, burns, chemicals, or other potential injuries. Therefore, both safety glasses and gloves are essential forms of PPE.

      Yellow

    • D.

      Amber

    Correct Answer
    B. Mirrored
    Explanation
    FRC (First Robotics Competition) does not allow mirrored safety glasses because they can reflect light and potentially blind or distract other participants. Mirrored glasses may also hinder visibility by reflecting glare or causing distortion. Therefore, to ensure the safety of all participants, FRC prohibits the use of mirrored safety glasses.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Others must be able to see your ___________ while working.

    Correct Answer
    eye
    eyes
    Explanation
    When working, it is important for others to be able to see your eye or eyes. This is because eye contact is an important form of nonverbal communication. It helps to establish a connection with others, convey interest and attentiveness, and build trust. By allowing others to see your eye or eyes, you are demonstrating openness and engagement, which can contribute to effective collaboration and communication in a professional setting.

    Safety rated prescription glasses can be used as PPE with what? 

    • A.

      Rubber-edged lenses

    • B.

      Thick Lenses

    • D.

      Side Shields

    Correct Answer
    D. Side Shields
    Explanation
    Safety rated prescription glasses can be used as PPE with side shields. Side shields are additional attachments that are added to the sides of the glasses to provide extra protection from hazards such as flying debris or splashes. These shields help to prevent any objects from entering the sides of the glasses and causing potential harm to the eyes. Therefore, by using safety rated prescription glasses with side shields, individuals can ensure that their eyes are adequately protected while working in potentially hazardous environments.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Hand PPE is used to protect against ___________ hazards.

    • A.

      Heat

    • B.

      Electrical

    • C.

      Chemical

    • D.

      Sweat

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Heat
    B. Electrical
    C. Chemical
    Explanation
    Hand PPE is used to protect against heat, electrical, and chemical hazards. Heat hazards can include burns from hot surfaces or materials, while electrical hazards can involve electric shocks or electrocution. Chemical hazards can include exposure to harmful substances that can cause skin irritation or burns. Hand PPE, such as gloves, can provide a barrier between the hands and these hazards, reducing the risk of injury or harm. Sweat, on the other hand, is not a hazard that hand PPE protects against.

    A form of hearing PPE are ear muffs.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Ear muffs are not a form of hearing PPE. Ear muffs are actually a type of hearing protection device (HPD) rather than personal protective equipment (PPE). PPE typically refers to equipment worn to minimize exposure to hazards that can cause injury or illness, while HPDs are specifically designed to protect against excessive noise levels. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Earplugs are an example of hearing PPE. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Earplugs are considered as hearing personal protective equipment (PPE) because they are designed to protect the ears from excessive noise. They are typically made of foam or silicone material that can be inserted into the ear canal to reduce the intensity of sound. By wearing earplugs, individuals can minimize the risk of hearing damage or loss in noisy environments. Therefore, the statement "Earplugs are an example of hearing PPE" is true.

    D. Lift with your legs not with your back
    Explanation
    Lifting heavy objects with your legs instead of your back is the correct way to lift to avoid straining your back muscles and potentially causing injury. By using the strength of your leg muscles, you can distribute the weight more evenly and reduce the strain on your back. This technique also helps to maintain proper posture while lifting, keeping your spine aligned and reducing the risk of back pain or injury.

    MSDS, or Material Safety Data Sheets, are documents that provide crucial information about substances used at work. They contain details about the physical and chemical properties of the substances, potential hazards associated with their use, safety precautions, and emergency procedures. MSDS helps ensure the safe handling, storage, and disposal of substances in the workplace, protecting the health and well-being of employees.
