    C. Labels
    Explanation
    Employers must communicate hazard information through labels. Labels are an essential means of conveying important information about potential hazards associated with a particular substance or product. They provide clear and concise information about the nature of the hazard, appropriate handling procedures, and necessary precautions to be taken. Labels ensure that employees are aware of the potential risks and can take necessary measures to protect themselves and others. Additionally, labels also help in identifying and organizing hazardous materials in the workplace, making it easier to handle and store them safely.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Chemical Hazard information is readily available at all times in the workplace on the __________ and _________.

    • A.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. SDSs & labels
    Explanation
    Chemical Hazard information is readily available at all times in the workplace on the SDSs and labels. SDSs (Safety Data Sheets) provide detailed information about the hazards, handling, and emergency procedures for specific chemicals. Labels also provide important information about the hazards associated with a chemical, including pictograms, signal words, and precautionary statements. By having both SDSs and labels easily accessible, employees can quickly and easily access the necessary information to ensure their safety when working with chemicals.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    One of the written Haz/Com program requirements is

    • A.

      Describe container labeling, MSDSs & employee training

    • B.

      List of Hazardous Chemicals

    • C.

      Make information regarding hazards & protective measures available

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above" because all of the options listed are requirements for a written Haz/Com program. The program must describe container labeling, MSDSs (Material Safety Data Sheets), and employee training. It should also include a list of hazardous chemicals and make information regarding hazards and protective measures available to employees. Therefore, all of the options mentioned are necessary components of a Haz/Com program.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    SDSs describe ___________ hazards and ____________ hazards of the chemicals.

    • A.

      Eye and Mouth

      Mental & Physical

    • D.

      Proper & Improper

    Correct Answer
    B. Physical & Health
    Explanation
    SDSs, or Safety Data Sheets, provide information about the hazards associated with chemicals. They describe both the physical hazards, which refer to the properties of the chemical that can cause harm, such as flammability or corrosiveness, and the health hazards, which refer to the potential effects on human health, such as toxicity or irritation. Therefore, the correct answer is "Physical & Health".

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Training is required for employees who are exposed to _________ in the work area.

    • A.

      Direct access of the MSDS

    • C.

      Hazardous chemicals

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Hazardous chemicals
    Explanation
    Employees who are exposed to hazardous chemicals in the work area require training. This is because hazardous chemicals can pose a risk to the health and safety of employees if they are not handled properly. Training ensures that employees are aware of the potential hazards associated with these chemicals and are equipped with the knowledge and skills to safely handle and use them. It also helps in preventing accidents, injuries, and potential damage to the environment.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Measures for protecting workers & reducing the risk of exposure to hazardous materials require the use of

    • A.

      Personal Protective Equipment

    • B.

      Long sleeve shirts

    • C.

      Full rubber body suits

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Personal Protective Equipment
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Personal Protective Equipment. Measures for protecting workers and reducing the risk of exposure to hazardous materials often involve the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). PPE includes items such as gloves, masks, goggles, and protective clothing, which are designed to protect workers from potential hazards in the workplace. PPE acts as a barrier between the worker and the hazardous materials, minimizing the risk of exposure and potential harm. Long sleeve shirts and full rubber body suits may be part of the PPE, but the use of PPE as a whole is the most comprehensive measure for worker protection.

    The concept of the standard is based on the idea that employees have a need and a right to know the hazards they are exposed to at work. This means that it is not only necessary for employees to have this information for their own safety, but it is also their entitlement to be informed about potential risks in their workplace. This ensures that employees can make informed decisions and take necessary precautions to protect themselves from harm.

    Safety Data Sheets (SDS) provide detailed information about the hazards of chemicals, including protective measures that should be taken when handling them. SDS contain information about the chemical composition, physical and chemical properties, health hazards, first aid measures, and personal protective equipment required for safe handling. Employees can refer to SDS to understand the potential risks associated with the chemicals they use and identify the appropriate protective measures to minimize these risks. The Safety Manual and Employee Handbook may provide general safety guidelines, but the SDS specifically address the protective measures for the chemicals being used.
