Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Employees with a safety attitude have the right attitude?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Employees with a safety attitude have the right attitude because a safety attitude refers to an individual's mindset and behavior towards safety measures and precautions in the workplace. Having the right attitude means that employees are aware of the importance of safety, follow safety protocols, and actively contribute to creating a safe work environment. This includes being proactive in identifying and addressing potential hazards, adhering to safety guidelines, and promoting a safety culture among their peers. Ultimately, employees with a safety attitude prioritize their own well-being and that of their colleagues, leading to a safer and more productive workplace.

    Employer safety programs should provide for frequent and regular inspections of the job sites, mateirals and equipment.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Employer safety programs should include frequent and regular inspections of job sites, materials, and equipment to ensure a safe working environment. These inspections help identify potential hazards, maintain compliance with safety regulations, and prevent accidents or injuries. By regularly assessing the condition of the workplace and equipment, employers can take necessary measures to address any safety concerns promptly. This proactive approach demonstrates a commitment to employee well-being and reduces the likelihood of workplace accidents.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Any employees can operate equipment and machinery at the worksite if they have some idea of how it works.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because it is not enough for employees to have just "some idea" of how equipment and machinery works in order to operate them safely. Operating equipment and machinery requires proper training and knowledge to ensure the safety of both the employee and the worksite. Having only a basic understanding can lead to accidents, injuries, and damage to the equipment or property. Therefore, it is important for employees to receive proper training and certification before operating any equipment or machinery.

  • 4. 

    Guardrails, covers, personal fall arrest systems and safety ropes are all types of fall protections

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Guardrails, covers, personal fall arrest systems, and safety ropes are not all types of fall protections. While guardrails, personal fall arrest systems, and safety ropes are fall protection measures, covers are not specifically designed for fall protection. Covers are typically used to prevent objects or debris from falling through openings or holes, rather than protecting individuals from falling. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Rerouting or properly covering exposed cables/cords that cross pathways is one way to prevent slips, trips, and falls.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Rerouting or properly covering exposed cables/cords that cross pathways can help prevent slips, trips, and falls. When cables or cords are left exposed, they can create tripping hazards, especially in areas with high foot traffic. By rerouting them or covering them with protective materials, the risk of accidents can be significantly reduced. This is why the statement "Rerouting or properly covering exposed cables/cords that cross pathways is one way to prevent slips, trips, and falls" is true.

  • 6. 

    When lifting heavy objects it is always a good idea to get help or use special equipment.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When lifting heavy objects, it is important to prioritize safety. Getting help or using special equipment can help distribute the weight and reduce the risk of injury. This is especially true for objects that are beyond one's physical capabilities to lift alone. By seeking assistance or utilizing appropriate tools, individuals can ensure that the lifting process is safer and more manageable.

    Employees should always assume all overhead power lines are energized.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Employees should always assume all overhead power lines are energized because it is the safest approach. Assuming that the power lines are energized helps to prevent accidents and injuries that could occur from coming into contact with live wires. Even if a power line appears to be inactive or disconnected, there is still a risk of residual energy or the potential for it to become live at any moment. Therefore, it is crucial for employees to treat all overhead power lines as energized and take appropriate safety precautions.

    Trenches and excavations must be inspected daily for evidence of possible cave-ins, hazardous atmospheres, failure of protective systems or other unsafe conditions.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because trenches and excavations pose significant risks to workers. Daily inspections are necessary to identify any potential hazards such as cave-ins, hazardous atmospheres, or failure of protective systems. By conducting regular inspections, employers can ensure the safety of workers and take appropriate measures to prevent accidents or injuries.

    Guardrails should be installed along all open sides and ends of platforms.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Guardrails are an essential safety measure to prevent falls from elevated platforms. Installing guardrails along all open sides and ends of platforms ensures that there are no unprotected edges where workers or individuals could accidentally fall off. By having guardrails in place, the risk of accidents and injuries can be significantly reduced, making it necessary to install them along all open sides and ends of platforms.

    Employees should take personal responsibility for their safety, their co-workers and others on the job site.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Employees should take personal responsibility for their safety, as well as the safety of their co-workers and others on the job site. This means that employees should actively identify and report any hazards, follow safety protocols and procedures, use personal protective equipment, and communicate effectively with others to prevent accidents and promote a safe working environment. By taking personal responsibility, employees contribute to a culture of safety and help prevent injuries and incidents.
