    Correct Answer
    B. False

    Simple household chemicals, often found in office settings, can still be dangerous despite people being used to them in their homes.

Therefore, the statement that simple household chemicals are not usually considered very dangerous is false.

    Never open more than two drawers of a file cabinet at the same time.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Opening more than two drawers of a file cabinet at the same time is not necessarily a problem or against any rule. This statement is a generalization or a precautionary measure that suggests not opening more than two drawers simultaneously to avoid potential accidents or the file cabinet tipping over. However, it is not a strict rule, and there may be situations where opening more than two drawers at once is perfectly safe. Therefore, the statement is false.

    It is important to report any injury to your supervisor or manager as soon as possible, regardless of its severity. This allows them to take appropriate action, such as providing medical assistance or implementing safety measures to prevent further accidents. Reporting injuries promptly also helps in documenting the incident and can be crucial for insurance claims or legal purposes. By reporting all injuries, even minor ones, a culture of safety and accountability can be fostered in the workplace.

    Alternating work positions and taking regular breaks are just a couple of ways to help avoid Musculoskeletal Disorders.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Alternating work positions and taking regular breaks are effective ways to prevent Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs). By changing positions frequently, it helps to reduce the strain and stress on muscles, tendons, and other tissues, thus minimizing the risk of developing MSDs. Additionally, taking regular breaks allows the body to rest and recover, preventing overuse injuries and promoting better overall musculoskeletal health. Therefore, the statement "Alternating work positions and taking regular breaks are just a couple of ways to help avoid Musculoskeletal Disorders" is true.

    Using proper lifting techniques is always the best way, even if just picking up a piece of paper from the floor.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Using proper lifting techniques is always the best way, even if just picking up a piece of paper from the floor. This is because even though picking up a piece of paper may seem insignificant, improper lifting techniques can still cause strain on the back and potentially lead to injury. By using proper lifting techniques, such as bending at the knees and keeping the back straight, individuals can minimize the risk of injury and maintain good posture and body mechanics.

    In the event of a fire, you should always attempt to put the fire out before any other action is taken.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Attempting to put out a fire should not always be the first action taken in the event of a fire. The priority should be to ensure the safety of individuals by evacuating the area and calling emergency services. Trying to extinguish the fire without proper training or equipment can be dangerous and potentially worsen the situation. It is important to prioritize personal safety and follow established fire safety protocols.
