    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    All employees, and in particular vessel crewmembers, are responsible for safety awareness of the potential fire hazards associated with use and storage of flammable and combustible materials.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    All employees, including vessel crewmembers, have a responsibility to be aware of the potential fire hazards that may arise from the use and storage of flammable and combustible materials. This implies that safety awareness is a shared responsibility among all employees, and not just limited to a specific group or department. Therefore, the statement "All employees, and in particular vessel crewmembers, are responsible for safety awareness of the potential fire hazards associated with use and storage of flammable and combustible materials" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Each tug should be outfitted with an independent locker for suitable and safe stowage of flammable and combustible materials to reduce the risks of fire and/or explosion.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement suggests that each tug should have its own locker to store flammable and combustible materials. This is important to reduce the risks of fire and explosion. By providing separate lockers, the materials can be stored safely and securely, minimizing the potential for accidents. This precaution is necessary to ensure the safety of the crew and the vessel.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The flammable materials locker should have a lid that can be shut. It should be painted YELLOW and labeled as a “Flammable Stowage” locker. It should be installed topside on weather decks, well ventilated, and suitably distant from heat or spark sources.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the flammable materials locker should not be installed topside on weather decks. It should be located in a well-ventilated area, but it should also be installed below deck to minimize the risk of fire spreading to other areas of the ship.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Paint should be in new, unopened cans and securely stowed from breakage. These stowage areas should always be away from heat sources (i.e. heaters, hot pipes, manifolds, etc.).

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because paint should always be stored in new, unopened cans to ensure its quality and prevent contamination. Additionally, securely stowing the paint cans helps to prevent breakage and spillage. Storing the paint away from heat sources is important because heat can cause the paint to deteriorate or even ignite, posing a safety risk. Therefore, it is necessary to follow these guidelines to ensure the safe and proper storage of paint.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Flammable materials should not be kept in the interior engineering spaces of the vessel and only small quantities kept for immediate or near-term use in non-engineering spaces.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because flammable materials pose a high risk of fire and should not be stored in the interior engineering spaces of a vessel. These spaces typically contain machinery and equipment that can generate heat or sparks, increasing the likelihood of ignition. However, small quantities of flammable materials may be kept in non-engineering spaces for immediate or near-term use, as long as proper safety measures are in place. This helps to minimize the potential hazards associated with flammable materials on board the vessel.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Inspection of the flammable and combustible materials onboard should be conducted ________ and excess materials disposed of properly.

    • A.

      Daily

    • B.

      Weekly

    • C.

      Periodically

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Periodically
    Explanation
    Inspection of the flammable and combustible materials onboard should be conducted periodically to ensure the safety of the vessel. Regular inspections are necessary to identify any potential hazards or issues with these materials. By conducting periodic inspections, any excess materials can be identified and disposed of properly, reducing the risk of accidents or fires onboard.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    A fire extinguisher should be mounted __________  and accessible to the flammable storage area.

    • A.

      Inside only

    • B.

      Outside only

    • C.

      Inside or outside

    • D.

      Where possible

    Correct Answer
    D. Where possible
    Explanation
    A fire extinguisher should be mounted where possible and accessible to the flammable storage area because it is important to have a fire extinguisher nearby in case of a fire emergency. Placing it where possible ensures that it is within reach and easily accessible to quickly respond to any potential fire hazards. Whether it is mounted inside or outside will depend on the specific circumstances and layout of the flammable storage area.
