    • C.

      Electrical wires, electronic equipment

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Type A fires consist of materials that are combustible and can easily catch fire, such as paper, cloth, and wood. These materials have a high fuel load and can sustain a fire once ignited. They are commonly found in homes, offices, and other buildings. It is important to be aware of the type of fire and use the appropriate extinguishing agent, such as water or foam, to effectively control and extinguish the fire.

    A. Flammable liquids, solvents, oil
    Explanation
    Type B fires consist of flammable liquids, solvents, and oil. This means that if a fire involves any of these substances, it would be classified as a Type B fire. Flammable liquids, such as gasoline or alcohol, can easily catch fire and spread rapidly. Solvents, like acetone or paint thinners, are also highly flammable and can contribute to the intensity of the fire. Oil, whether it is cooking oil or industrial lubricants, can also ignite and fuel a fire. Therefore, when dealing with a fire involving these substances, specific firefighting techniques and extinguishing agents suitable for Type B fires should be used.

    • C.

      Electrical wires, electronic equipment

    Correct Answer
    C. Electrical wires, electronic equipment
    Explanation
    Type C fires consist of electrical wires and electronic equipment. These fires are caused by electrical faults or short circuits, which can ignite the surrounding materials. Flammable liquids, solvents, oil, paper, cloth, and wood are not classified as Type C fires. Therefore, the correct answer is electrical wires and electronic equipment.

    In the case of an accident you should always:

    • A.

      Report immediately to your lab partner

    • B.

      Report immediately to your teacher

    • C.

      See how severe the accident before reporting to your lab partner

      See how severe the accident before reporting to your teacher

    Correct Answer
    B. Report immediately to your teacher
    Explanation
    In the case of an accident, it is important to report immediately to your teacher. Your teacher is responsible for ensuring the safety of everyone in the lab and can provide immediate assistance or contact the appropriate authorities if needed. Reporting to your lab partner may not be sufficient as they may not have the authority or knowledge to handle the situation effectively. Additionally, assessing the severity of the accident before reporting may waste valuable time and potentially put others at risk.

  • 16. 

    What is the number one cause of accidents in the workspace?

    • A.

      Faulty equipment

    • B.

      Human error

    • C.

      Wet surfaces

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Human error
    Explanation
    Human error is the number one cause of accidents in the workspace because it encompasses a wide range of mistakes or lapses in judgment made by individuals. This can include negligence, lack of attention, poor decision-making, fatigue, or even ignorance of safety protocols. Unlike faulty equipment or wet surfaces, which can be addressed and controlled through maintenance and safety measures, human error is more difficult to eliminate completely. Therefore, it is crucial for organizations to prioritize training, supervision, and creating a culture of safety to minimize the occurrence of accidents caused by human error.

Leaving them behind can put their lives at risk and hinder the overall safety of the group. It is important to follow instructions, stay calm, and evacuate the building together as a group to ensure everyone's safety.

    It is ok to meet up with someone you met on the internet, as long as you have chatted with them for at least a week.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Meeting up with someone you met on the internet solely based on a week of chatting is not a safe practice. It takes more time to truly get to know someone and establish trust.

It is important to prioritize personal safety and exercise caution when meeting people from the internet.
