Incident Quizzes & Trivia

Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Every incident should be investigated immediately so that we can determine who was to blame.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because not every incident needs to be investigated immediately to determine who was to blame. Some incidents may not require investigation or may not have a clear person or party to blame. Additionally, the urgency of investigating an incident may depend on the severity of the incident and other factors such as the availability of resources and the potential impact on individuals or the organization.

    A "near miss" should be investigated in the same manner as an actual accident.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A "near miss" should be investigated in the same manner as an actual accident because it provides valuable insights and lessons to prevent future accidents. Even though a near miss did not result in any harm or damage, it indicates a potential hazard or failure in the system that could have led to a serious accident. By investigating near misses, organizations can identify the underlying causes, assess the risks, and implement corrective actions to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future. This proactive approach helps improve safety and prevent accidents before they happen.

    Most incidents have only one contributing factor.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because most incidents usually have multiple contributing factors. Incidents are typically caused by a combination of various factors, such as human error, equipment failure, environmental conditions, or organizational issues. Rarely can a single factor be solely responsible for an incident. Understanding and addressing all the contributing factors is crucial for preventing similar incidents from occurring in the future.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The incident scene should be returned to normal as soon as the investigator arrives.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the incident scene should not be returned to normal as soon as the investigator arrives. The investigator needs to assess the scene in its original state to gather evidence and determine the cause of the incident. Altering or returning the scene to normal could potentially destroy or contaminate evidence, making it difficult to conduct a thorough investigation.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Corrective measure should address whatever hazards are uncovered in investigating the incident.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because when investigating an incident, it is important to identify and address the hazards that contributed to the incident. By addressing these hazards, corrective measures can be implemented to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future. This helps to improve safety and prevent potential harm to individuals or damage to property.
