Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    November - Safety Resource Manual

  • 2. 

    Personal Protective Equipment was meant to be comfortable at all times.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "Personal Protective Equipment was meant to be comfortable at all times" is false. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is designed to protect individuals from potential hazards and risks in the workplace, such as chemicals, physical injuries, or infectious diseases. While efforts are made to make PPE as comfortable as possible, the primary focus is on ensuring its effectiveness in providing protection rather than prioritizing comfort. PPE may sometimes be uncomfortable to wear due to its design or materials used, but it is crucial for the safety and well-being of individuals in hazardous environments.

    A hard hat that has been dropped or received a severe blow should be replaced.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A hard hat that has been dropped or received a severe blow should be replaced because it may have sustained damage that is not visible to the naked eye. Even if there are no visible cracks or dents, the impact could have weakened the hat's structural integrity, making it less effective in protecting the wearer from potential hazards. It is important to prioritize safety and replace the hard hat to ensure maximum protection.

    Rubber gloves are to be used when handling rigging and lines.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Rubber gloves are not to be used when handling rigging and lines. This is because rubber gloves can be slippery and may reduce grip and control, increasing the risk of accidents. Instead, it is recommended to use gloves made from materials that provide better grip and dexterity, such as leather or synthetic materials designed for rigging and line handling tasks.

    Sunscreen is a form of PPE.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Sunscreen is considered a form of personal protective equipment (PPE) because it helps protect the skin from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. PPE is any equipment or clothing that is designed to protect the wearer from potential hazards in the environment. Sunscreen acts as a barrier against the sun's UV radiation, reducing the risk of sunburn, skin damage, and potentially skin cancer. Therefore, it falls under the category of PPE as it provides protection to the individual wearing it.

  • 6. 

    A baseball hat is a form of PPE.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A baseball hat can be considered a form of personal protective equipment (PPE) because it provides some level of protection to the wearer. While it may not offer the same level of protection as other types of PPE, such as helmets or face shields, a baseball hat can shield the wearer's face and eyes from the sun, rain, or other environmental elements. It can also provide some protection against minor impacts or debris. Therefore, it can be classified as a form of PPE.
