    What do you do if you discover a fire?(Select the correct answer)

    • A.

      Spend 30 min looking for your supervisor who will know what to do

    • B.

      Run down the corridor shouting "Fire! Fire! we're all going to die!"

    • C.

      Activate the nearest fire alarm call point and evacuate the building

    • D.

      Attempt to extinguish the fire

    Correct Answer
    C. Activate the nearest fire alarm call point and evacuate the building
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to activate the nearest fire alarm call point and evacuate the building. This is the appropriate action to take in case of a fire emergency. Activating the fire alarm will alert others in the building and initiate the evacuation process. Evacuating the building is crucial to ensure everyone's safety and to prevent the fire from spreading. Attempting to extinguish the fire may be dangerous and should be left to trained professionals. Spending time looking for a supervisor or panicking and shouting about the fire are not effective responses and may delay the evacuation process.

  • 3. 

    Which items need to be electrically tested?(Select the correct answer)

    • A.

      Fume cupboards

    • B.

      Gas detectors

    • C.

      Any electrical items with a plug - this means electrical appliances and power cables

    • D.

      Toilets

    Correct Answer
    C. Any electrical items with a plug - this means electrical appliances and power cables
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Any electrical items with a plug - this means electrical appliances and power cables." This answer is correct because electrical testing is typically conducted on items that are powered by electricity and have a plug. This includes electrical appliances such as refrigerators, televisions, and computers, as well as power cables that are used to connect these appliances to a power source. Fume cupboards, gas detectors, and toilets do not typically have plugs and therefore do not require electrical testing.

    • D.

      Washing them with soap and water to ensure they are clean

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Securing them off the floor
    C. Always connecting them to their own mains socket
    Explanation
    The safe use of distribution boards/extension leads includes securing them off the floor to prevent tripping hazards and potential damage to the equipment. It is also important to always connect them to their own mains socket to ensure proper electrical grounding and prevent overloading of circuits. Plugging heaters into them is not safe as it can lead to overheating and fire hazards. Washing them with soap and water is not necessary and can damage the electrical components.

    • D.

      By bringing it home

    Correct Answer
    C. As Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) through Facilities Management
    Explanation
    Electrical and electronic equipment should be disposed of as Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) through Facilities Management. This means that these items should not be thrown in the domestic waste bin or left in common areas like corridors or lift bays. Instead, they should be properly managed and recycled through the appropriate channels to ensure their safe and environmentally friendly disposal. Bringing them home or disposing of them in any other way is not recommended.

    If an activity has a Competence Scheme, this means that:(Choose the correct answer)

    • A.

      No work can be carried out until a user has reached competence level 3

    • B.

      Work can be carried out as long as users receive the supervision adequate for their levels of competence

    • C.

      If a user has been trained, they are competent to carry out the activity

    • D.

      If the user has experience, they are competent to carry out the activity

    Correct Answer
    B. Work can be carried out as long as users receive the supervision adequate for their levels of competence
    Explanation
    If an activity has a Competence Scheme, it means that work can be carried out as long as users receive the supervision adequate for their levels of competence. This implies that users do not necessarily need to reach a specific competence level before they can start working on the activity. Instead, they can begin working as long as they have the necessary supervision that matches their current level of competence. This allows for a more flexible approach to carrying out the activity, ensuring that users can gain experience and improve their competence while still being able to contribute to the work.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The correct answer is true because when sitting in a desk chair, it is important to have proper support for the lower back.

    Your desk chair should be narrow so that you are sitting tightly with pressure applied to your thighs

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The explanation for the answer being False is that your desk chair should not be narrow. A narrow chair would not provide enough space for you to sit comfortably and may restrict your movement. It is important to have a chair that is wide enough to support your body and allow you to sit with proper posture. Additionally, sitting tightly with pressure applied to your thighs can lead to discomfort and poor circulation. Therefore, a narrow chair is not recommended.
