    Explanation
    The correct answer is Washing Hands, Wearing Hairnet, and Reporting Illness. These three options are personal hygiene controls that help maintain cleanliness and prevent the spread of germs and infections.

Reporting illness is important to prevent the spread of contagious diseases and ensure the safety of others.

    Select 2 forms of PPE which can be used to Control Hair Contamination

    • A.

      Beard Snood

    • B.

      Apron

    • C.

      Hairnet

    • D.

      Hard Hat

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Beard Snood
    C. Hairnet
    Explanation
    Beard snood and hairnet are two forms of personal protective equipment (PPE) that can be used to control hair contamination. A beard snood is specifically designed to cover and secure facial hair, preventing it from coming into contact with the environment. A hairnet, on the other hand, is used to cover and contain the hair on the head, reducing the risk of hair falling into sensitive areas. Both of these PPE options are effective in preventing hair contamination and maintaining a hygienic environment.

    Hairnets must cover all hair and ears.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Hairnets must cover all hair and ears to ensure proper hygiene and prevent contamination. Hair and ear hair can easily fall out and contaminate food or other items, especially in industries such as food service or healthcare. By covering all hair and ears with a hairnet, the risk of hair or ear hair falling out and causing contamination is minimized. Therefore, the statement "Hairnets must cover all hair and ears" is true.

    Select 3 areas where Overalls/Coats are strictly prohibited

    • A.

      Canteen

    • B.

      Stores

    • C.

      Toilets

    • D.

      Reception

    • E.

      Corridors

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Canteen
    C. Toilets
    D. Reception
    Explanation
    Overalls and coats are strictly prohibited in the canteen, toilets, and reception areas. This is likely because these areas require a higher level of cleanliness and hygiene, and wearing overalls or coats can potentially introduce dirt, contaminants, or odors. Additionally, in reception areas, it may be important for employees to present a professional appearance when interacting with visitors or clients. Therefore, prohibiting overalls and coats in these areas helps maintain cleanliness, hygiene, and professionalism.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Hand Washing and Sanitising are not compulsory measures used to control Contamination

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Hand Washing and Sanitising are compulsory measures used to control contamination. These practices help to remove germs and bacteria from hands, reducing the risk of spreading infections. Hand washing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds is recommended by health authorities as an effective way to prevent the transmission of diseases. Similarly, hand sanitizers with at least 60% alcohol content are also considered effective in killing germs when soap and water are not readily available. Therefore, the statement that Hand Washing and Sanitising are not compulsory measures to control contamination is false.

    False nails, nail varnish and nail jewellery are permitted to be worn in Food Areas

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    False nails, nail varnish, and nail jewellery are not permitted to be worn in food areas because they can pose a risk of contamination. These items can easily chip or break off and fall into the food, causing a potential health hazard. Additionally, the chemicals in nail varnish can also contaminate the food. Therefore, it is important to maintain good hygiene practices in food areas and avoid wearing these items.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Select the only type of jewellery permitted to be worn in Food Areas

    • A.

      Ornate jewellery

    • B.

      Plain wedding band

    • C.

      Wedding ring with a small stone

    • D.

      Bracelet

    Correct Answer
    B. Plain wedding band
    Explanation
    Plain wedding bands are the only type of jewellery permitted to be worn in food areas because they are simple and do not have any intricate designs or stones that could potentially fall off and contaminate the food. Unlike ornate jewellery or bracelets, plain wedding bands are less likely to harbor bacteria or pose a safety risk in a food preparation or service environment. Wedding rings with small stones may still have the risk of stones coming loose and causing contamination, hence they are not permitted.
