    How long is the hard hat good for?

    Correct Answer
    5 years
    Explanation
    The hard hat is good for a period of 5 years. This is likely because hard hats are designed to withstand a certain amount of wear and tear, and after 5 years, they may no longer provide the necessary protection. Additionally, the materials used in hard hats may degrade over time, making them less effective in protecting against impacts or other hazards. It is important to regularly inspect and replace hard hats to ensure the safety of the wearer.

    Fall protection for ironworkers is generally required at height of:

    • A.

      6 feet

    • B.

      10 feet

    • C.

      15 feet

    • D.

      35 feet

    Correct Answer
    C. 15 feet
    Explanation
    Fall protection for ironworkers is generally required at a height of 15 feet. This is because at this height, there is an increased risk of serious injury or fatality if a worker were to fall. Fall protection measures such as harnesses, safety nets, or guardrails are necessary to prevent falls and protect the workers. At heights below 15 feet, there may still be a risk of injury, but it is generally considered less severe, and fall protection may not be required. At heights above 15 feet, the risk of injury increases significantly, and fall protection becomes mandatory to ensure worker safety.
