    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "Some potential eye hazards in the workplace include strain, impact, chemical, and organic" is true. It correctly identifies the various types of hazards that can pose a risk to the eyes in a workplace setting. Strain can occur from prolonged computer use or poor lighting, impact hazards can result from flying debris or tools, chemical hazards can cause damage if they come into contact with the eyes, and organic hazards refer to biological substances that can cause infection or irritation.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The possibility of multiple hazards occurring simultaneously is true. This means that it is possible for different hazards to happen at the same time, increasing the risk and potential damage. For example, during a natural disaster like a hurricane, there can be heavy rainfall, strong winds, and storm surges all happening at once, causing widespread destruction. It is important to be prepared for the possibility of multiple hazards occurring simultaneously to ensure the safety and well-being of individuals and communities.

    If an eye injury occurs, quick action can prevent a permanent disability. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Quick action can prevent a permanent disability in the case of an eye injury because prompt medical attention can help minimize damage and increase the chances of successful treatment. The eyes are delicate organs, and any injury can potentially lead to long-term vision problems or even permanent loss of vision. Therefore, taking immediate action such as rinsing the eye, covering it with a protective shield, and seeking medical help can significantly reduce the risk of permanent disability.

    Glasses or spectacles shield the eyes from a variety of hazards and different lenses are required depending upon the hazard.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because glasses or spectacles are designed to protect the eyes from various hazards. Different lenses are used depending on the specific hazard, such as clear lenses for general protection, tinted lenses for sunlight, or safety lenses for impact protection. Therefore, it is important to choose the appropriate lenses for different situations to ensure the eyes are adequately shielded.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Goggles shield the wearer's eyes from impact, heat, chemical, and dust hazards depending upon the type of lenses, frame, and ventilation. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Goggles are designed to protect the wearer's eyes from various hazards such as impact, heat, chemicals, and dust. The type of lenses, frame, and ventilation of the goggles determine the level of protection provided. Therefore, it is true that goggles shield the wearer's eyes from these hazards.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Comfort and fit of the eye protection is of no concern just as long as the protection is appropriate for the hazard. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the comfort and fit of eye protection are important factors to consider. If the eye protection is not comfortable or does not fit properly, it may cause discomfort or even become a hazard itself. Properly fitting eye protection ensures that it stays in place and provides adequate coverage, reducing the risk of eye injuries. Therefore, both the appropriateness for the hazard and the comfort and fit of the eye protection are important considerations.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    As long as the eye protection looks appropriate for the hazard, it is probably safe to assume it is the correct protection.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because the assumption that eye protection is correct based solely on its appearance is not safe. Eye protection should be chosen based on the specific hazards present in the environment. Different hazards require different types of eye protection, such as safety glasses, goggles, or face shields. Therefore, it is important to assess the specific hazards and select the appropriate eye protection accordingly.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Employees should be able to demonstrate an understanding of the training and the ability to use eye protection properly before being allowed to perform work requiring the use of eye protection. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Employees should be able to demonstrate an understanding of the training and the ability to use eye protection properly before being allowed to perform work requiring the use of eye protection. This means that employees need to have knowledge about the purpose and proper usage of eye protection, as well as the ability to apply that knowledge in practical situations. By ensuring that employees are trained and competent in using eye protection, employers can minimize the risk of eye injuries and create a safer work environment. Therefore, the statement "True" is the correct answer.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When eye protection is required, employees who wear prescription (Rx) glasses or contacts must use PPE that incorporates the prescription or use of eye protection that can be worn over prescription glasses. This means that if an employee needs to wear prescription glasses or contacts, they cannot simply rely on regular eye protection; they must use eye protection that accommodates their prescription. Therefore, the statement "True" is correct.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Emergency eyewashes should be located in all hazardous areas to ensure the safety of individuals in case of an accident or exposure to harmful substances. These eyewashes provide immediate access to water to flush out any chemicals or foreign objects that may have come into contact with the eyes, preventing further damage or injury. By having emergency eyewashes in all hazardous areas, employers can fulfill their duty to protect the well-being of their employees and minimize the potential risks associated with working in such environments.
