Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    ....... account for only about 3% of workplace accident

    • A.

      Unsafe act

    • B.

      Unsafe condition

    • C.

      Both a & b

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    B. Unsafe condition
    Explanation
    Unsafe conditions refer to physical factors in the workplace that can potentially cause harm or injury to employees. These may include faulty equipment, inadequate lighting, slippery floors, or poor ventilation. On the other hand, unsafe acts are actions or behaviors by employees that can lead to accidents or injuries, such as not wearing protective gear, ignoring safety protocols, or taking shortcuts. The given answer, "Unsafe condition," suggests that the majority of workplace accidents can be attributed to physical hazards rather than employee actions.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    ....... account for only about 95% of workplace accident​​

    • A.

      Unsafe act

    • B.

      Unsafe condition

    • C.

      Both a & b

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    A. Unsafe act
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Unsafe act" because the statement suggests that unsafe acts are responsible for about 95% of workplace accidents. This implies that the majority of accidents occur due to the actions or behaviors of individuals that deviate from safe practices or procedures. Unsafe conditions, on the other hand, refer to physical hazards or environmental factors that may contribute to accidents, but this option is not mentioned in the statement. Therefore, the most appropriate answer is "Unsafe act."

    Which of the following are hazard from welding gases?

    • A.

      Asphysciation

    • B.

      Fire 

    • C.

      Explotion

    • D.

      All

    Correct Answer
    D. All
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All" because all of the options listed (asphyxiation, fire, explosion) are hazards that can occur from welding gases. Asphyxiation can happen when welding gases displace oxygen in the air, leading to suffocation. Fire can occur if the welding gases come into contact with flammable materials or if sparks ignite nearby combustible substances. Explosion can happen if there is a buildup of gas pressure or if the welding gases mix with air in an enclosed space and ignite. Therefore, all of these hazards are potential risks when working with welding gases.

      Fines & Compensation

    • D.

      Loss protection time

    Correct Answer
    B. Lost time for investigation
    Explanation
    Lost time for investigation is the correct answer because it refers to the time that is lost as a result of conducting an investigation into the accident. This includes the time spent by employees, supervisors, and management in gathering information, interviewing witnesses, reviewing documents, and analyzing the causes of the accident. This is an indirect cost because it does not directly contribute to the production or operation of the business, but it is necessary to prevent future accidents and improve safety measures.

    D. All
    Explanation
    The insured cost refers to the expenses that are covered by an insurance policy. In this case, all of the options listed - medical expenditure, worker compensation, and employer's liability - are types of costs that can be insured. Therefore, the correct answer is "All."

Qualitative risk assessment involves the subjective evaluation of risks based on expert judgment and experience, while quantitative risk assessment involves the use of numerical data and calculations to quantify risks. Both approaches have their advantages and limitations, and depending on the context and available resources, either or both methods can be used to assess and manage risks effectively. Therefore, the correct answer is "All".

    B. Temporary warning device
    Explanation
    The safety tag is used as a temporary warning device. It is typically attached to equipment or machinery to indicate that it is currently undergoing maintenance or repair and should not be used. Safety tags are temporary in nature because they are only used during specific maintenance activities and are removed once the work is completed. They serve as a visual reminder to workers to avoid using the tagged equipment and help prevent accidents or injuries.

      Reduce

    • D.

      All

    Correct Answer
    B. Recycle
    Explanation
    Recycle is the correct answer because it involves the process of converting waste materials into new and useful products. Recycling helps to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfills, conserves natural resources, and reduces pollution caused by the extraction and production of new materials. By recycling, we can give a new life to materials that would otherwise end up as waste, contributing to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly approach to resource management.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Which of the following is proper hazard communication

    • A.

      Labels

    • B.

      MSDS

    • C.

      Both A & B

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    B. MSDS
    Explanation
    MSDS stands for Material Safety Data Sheet, which is a document that provides information about the potential hazards of a chemical substance. It includes details about the composition, physical and chemical properties, handling and storage instructions, emergency procedures, and more. MSDS is an essential part of hazard communication because it ensures that workers have access to important safety information about the substances they are working with. Labels, on the other hand, are also important for hazard communication, but they alone may not provide all the necessary details that an MSDS can offer. Therefore, the proper hazard communication includes both labels and MSDS.

    An active monitoring program at work place depend on checklist is 

    • A.

      Inspection

    • B.

      Observation

    • C.

      Both

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    B. Observation
    Explanation
    An active monitoring program at the workplace that depends on a checklist would involve observation. Observation involves actively looking and assessing the work environment, processes, and behaviors to ensure compliance with the checklist items. This method allows for real-time monitoring and identification of any deviations or non-compliance. Inspection, on the other hand, typically involves a more thorough and formal examination of the workplace, equipment, and procedures. Therefore, observation is the most suitable option for an active monitoring program that relies on a checklist.

Neglecting any of these factors can lead to potential risks and hazards at the site. Therefore, site management must ensure the implementation of all these measures for a safe and efficient work environment.

    Explanation
    Elimination is the most effective option of controlling hazards according to the hierarchy of control. This means completely removing the hazard from the workplace or process. By eliminating the hazard, there is no longer a risk of exposure or harm to workers. This is considered the most effective control measure because it completely eliminates the source of the hazard, rather than relying on other measures that may only reduce the risk or provide protection after the hazard is present.
