Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    Conductors have very little resistance to the flow of electricity.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 2. 
    Plastic, glass, porcelain, and dry wood are all considered good insulators.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 3. 
    Grounding is a safety measure that intentionally creates a low-resistance path to the earth for electrical current to pass.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 4. 
    Electricity travels in open circuits, normally through an insulator.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 5. 
    Electricity always attempts to travel to the ground/earth and looks for the shortest path and will take the path of least resistance to reach the ground.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 6. 
    Grounding pretty much guarantees that you will not get a shock or be injured by an electrical current.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 7. 
    An equipment ground provides a second path for the current to pass through from the tool or machine to the ground should a tool's metal frame become energized.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 8. 
    A GFCI is a fast-acting circuit breaker designed to shut off electric power in the event of a ground-fault within as little as 1/40 of a second to prevent electrocution.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 9. 
    Wet conditions increase the chances of shock and contribute greatly to low-voltage electrocutions.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 10. 
    Burns are the most common injury received from electrical shock.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 11. 
    Long exposures to electricity at low voltages are just as dangerous as short exposures at high voltages.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 12. 
    Some injuries that can occur due to electrical accidents include falls, fires, and explosions.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 13. 
    Using two-prong adaptor plugs on three-prong cords and tools is acceptable as long as you use them inside.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 14. 
    When working on or repairing machines, equipment, and tools, their unexpected start-up (energizing) can cause serious injuries and even death.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 15. 
    If someone is being shocked you should try to push them away from the circuit with a dry wooden stick or pole.

      True

    • B.
