      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is important to report any unsafe working conditions or tools to your supervisor immediately because they have the authority and responsibility to address and resolve such issues. By reporting these concerns, you help ensure a safe working environment for yourself and your colleagues, minimizing the risk of accidents or injuries.

    Tool should be kept in good working condition through regular maintenance.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Regular maintenance is necessary to keep a tool in good working condition. Without regular maintenance, tools can become worn out, rusty, or malfunctioning, which can affect their performance and lifespan. By performing regular maintenance tasks such as cleaning, lubricating, and inspecting the tool, it can be kept in optimal working condition, ensuring its effectiveness and durability. Therefore, it is important to regularly maintain tools to ensure their proper functioning.

    If a tool is damaged, you should try to repair it yourself before taking it back to the manufacturer.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is not recommended to try to repair a damaged tool yourself before taking it back to the manufacturer. Repairing a tool without proper knowledge and expertise can potentially cause further damage or lead to safety hazards. It is best to consult the manufacturer or a professional repair service to ensure that the tool is repaired correctly and safely.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    It is OK to use a large wrench to drive a small nail if you do not have a hammer readily available.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Using a large wrench to drive a small nail is not recommended because it can lead to damage or injury. The force applied by a large wrench may be excessive for a small nail, causing it to bend or break. Additionally, the wrench may slip off the nail, potentially causing harm to the user. It is best to use the appropriate tool for the task at hand, such as a hammer for driving nails. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Floors and work areas should be kept clean and dry to prevent accidents.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Keeping floors and work areas clean and dry is essential to prevent accidents because wet or dirty surfaces can be slippery and increase the risk of falls and injuries. By maintaining cleanliness and ensuring that floors are dry, the chances of accidents such as slips, trips, and falls are significantly reduced. This is particularly important in workplaces where there may be equipment, machinery, or hazardous materials present, as any accidents could have severe consequences. Therefore, it is crucial to prioritize cleanliness and dryness to maintain a safe working environment.

  • 6. 

    Personal protective equipment is vital to the safety of employees that work with hand and power tools.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Personal protective equipment (PPE) is essential for the safety of employees working with hand and power tools. These tools pose potential hazards like cuts, burns, and flying debris, which can be mitigated by wearing appropriate PPE such as gloves, safety glasses, and protective clothing. PPE acts as a barrier between the worker and the potential dangers, reducing the risk of injuries. Therefore, it is crucial for the safety and well-being of employees to use PPE when working with hand and power tools.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Employees have a responsibility to use PPE properly and when required.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Employees have a responsibility to use personal protective equipment (PPE) properly and when required. This is because PPE is designed to protect employees from potential hazards in the workplace, such as chemicals, noise, or physical injuries. By using PPE correctly, employees can minimize the risk of accidents or injuries and ensure their own safety. It is important for employees to understand the importance of PPE and comply with the guidelines and regulations set by their organization to create a safe working environment. Therefore, the statement "Employees have a responsibility to use PPE properly and when required" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Belts, gears, shafts, pulleys, or other reciprocating, rotating or moving parts of equipment must be guarded if they are exposed to contact by employees.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because belts, gears, shafts, pulleys, and other moving parts of equipment can pose a risk of injury if they are exposed and come into contact with employees. Guarding these parts helps to prevent accidents and protect employees from potential harm.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    It is permissible to remove safe guards temporarily when working in a tight area.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Removing safeguards temporarily when working in a tight area is not permissible. Safeguards are put in place to ensure the safety of individuals working in hazardous conditions, and removing them can increase the risk of accidents and injuries. It is important to always follow safety protocols and guidelines, even in tight or confined spaces, to minimize the potential dangers.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    The greatest hazards posed by hand tools are a result of misuse and improper maintenance.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Hand tools can be hazardous if they are not used correctly or maintained properly. Misuse of hand tools can lead to accidents, injuries, and damage to property. For example, using a screwdriver as a chisel or a wrench as a hammer can cause the tool to break or slip, leading to potential harm. Similarly, failing to maintain hand tools by keeping them clean, sharp, and in good condition can increase the risk of accidents. Therefore, the statement that the greatest hazards posed by hand tools are a result of misuse and improper maintenance is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Dull blades are more dangerous than sharp blades.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Dull blades are more dangerous than sharp blades because they require more force to cut through objects, increasing the risk of slipping and causing accidents. Dull blades also tend to cause more injuries as they can tear and crush the material being cut, rather than cleanly slicing through it like a sharp blade would. Additionally, the extra force required to use a dull blade can lead to fatigue and loss of control, further increasing the likelihood of accidents. Therefore, it is important to keep blades sharp to ensure safer and more efficient cutting.

    You should never point compressed air guns towards anyone.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Pointing compressed air guns towards anyone can be extremely dangerous as it can cause serious injuries or even death. The high pressure of the compressed air can propel objects at high velocities, causing severe harm upon impact. Therefore, it is essential to always prioritize safety and never direct compressed air guns towards people.

    Rate this question:

  • 13.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is important to report any accidents, even if the injury is minor, to your supervisor or the safety officer because they need to be aware of the incident and take appropriate actions. Reporting accidents helps in identifying potential hazards, preventing future accidents, and ensuring the safety and well-being of all individuals in the workplace.
