Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Why is personal protective equipment the “last resort” in hazard abatement?

    • A.

      Workers may not use the equipment properly.

    • B.

      Elimination of the hazard is always preferred.

    • C.

      OSHA prefers that other methods be employed first.

    • D.

      All of the above.

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above" because personal protective equipment (PPE) is considered the "last resort" in hazard abatement for several reasons. Firstly, workers may not use the equipment properly, which can lead to ineffective protection. Secondly, elimination of the hazard is always preferred as it eliminates the need for PPE altogether. Lastly, OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) prefers that other methods, such as engineering controls or administrative controls, be employed first before relying on PPE.

    Simply adjusting the way you work can remove body stress and alleviate musculoskeletal disorders:

    • A.

      True, changing your position relives your muscle fatigue

    • B.

      False, it makes no difference how you do your work.

    Correct Answer
    A. True, changing your position relives your muscle fatigue
    Explanation
    Changing your position while working can help relieve muscle fatigue because it allows different muscles to be engaged and reduces the strain on specific muscles that may become overworked or fatigued from prolonged use. This can help prevent musculoskeletal disorders and promote overall comfort and well-being.

    Musculoskeletal disorders only affect older workers who have always done hard physical labor.

    • A.

      Yes, only hard physical labor causes musculoskeletal disorders

    • B.

      No, there are many causes for musculoskeletal disorders

    Correct Answer
    B. No, there are many causes for musculoskeletal disorders
    Explanation
    This answer is correct because musculoskeletal disorders can be caused by various factors, not just hard physical labor. Other causes can include repetitive motions, poor posture, obesity, trauma, and genetic factors. Therefore, it is incorrect to assume that only older workers who have always done hard physical labor are affected by musculoskeletal disorders.

      Yes this is the only Personal protective Equipment ever required.

    Correct Answer
    A. No there is Personal Protective Equipment for every part of the body.
    Explanation
    The given answer states that there is Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) available for every part of the body, contradicting the statement that only PPE for head, hands, and eyes is required. This implies that additional PPE is necessary to ensure the safety of other body parts.

    • C.

      Order the cheapest PPE available

    Correct Answer
    B. Try to remove the risk if at all possible
    Explanation
    Before any personal protective equipment (PPE) is worn, it is important for the company to try to remove the risk if possible. This means identifying and addressing any potential hazards or dangers in the workplace that could harm employees. By eliminating or minimizing these risks, the need for PPE may be reduced or even eliminated altogether. This approach prioritizes prevention and ensures the safety and well-being of employees.
