    Correct Answer
    A. Lock up hazardous materials and pay attention to PA system for further announcements on when to muster
    Explanation
    In the event a severe storm warning is issued in your place of work, it is important to lock up hazardous materials to prevent any accidents or damage. Additionally, paying attention to the PA system for further announcements on when to muster is crucial as it ensures everyone's safety and allows for coordinated actions in case of an emergency. Leaving the building and going home may not be the best course of action as it depends on the specific instructions given by the authorities. Writing a will is not necessary in this situation.

    PPE should be disposed of and replaced when:

    • A.

      Every 12 months

    • B.

      When showing signs of wear

    • C.

      When a process changes

    • D.

      Every time you perform a hazardous task

    Correct Answer
    B. When showing signs of wear
    Explanation
    PPE should be disposed of and replaced when showing signs of wear because worn-out PPE may not provide the necessary protection. PPE is designed to withstand a certain level of wear and tear, but once it starts showing signs of damage or deterioration, it becomes less effective in protecting the wearer. Regular inspection of PPE is essential to identify any signs of wear, such as fraying, holes, or cracks, and replace the equipment promptly to ensure the safety of the user.

    Workers compensation insurance premiums are typically based on a three year averaging of actual losses divided by expected losses.  An experience modification with 1.00 is the average for that classification, what would the workers compensation premium be for an employee that earned $2000 and worked at a factory with a manual rating of 2.4 and the experience modification was 1.2?

    • A.

      $57.60

    • B.

      $11.45

    • C.

      $40.00

    • D.

      $28.28

    Correct Answer
    A. $57.60
    Explanation
    The workers compensation premium for an employee can be calculated by multiplying the employee's wage by the manual rating and the experience modification. In this case, the employee earned $2000, the manual rating is 2.4, and the experience modification is 1.2. Therefore, the premium would be $2000 * 2.4 * 1.2 = $57.60.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which of the following is not a type or classification of respirator?

    • A.

      Full face

    • B.

      Compressed Air

    • C.

      Air purifying

    • D.

      Supplied air

    Correct Answer
    B. Compressed Air
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Compressed Air." This is because compressed air is not a type or classification of respirator. Full face, air purifying, and supplied air are all types of respirators that are used for different purposes. Compressed air, on the other hand, is a method of delivering breathable air to a respirator, but it is not a type or classification in itself.
