Safety Tool Box Talk/Quiz 4.16.12 - Quiz

When doing manual work by hand, there’s nothing more important that knowing how to use tools safely and ensure that a job is not done at the expense of one’s health. What can you tell us about proper safety measures?


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    An example of properly matching the tool to the job is:

    • A.

      Using the right size slothead screwdriver on a slothead screw

    • B.

      Using a wrench to hammer in a nail

    • C.

      Using a hard metal hammer head on hardened steel

    Correct Answer
    A. Using the right size slothead screwdriver on a slothead screw
    Explanation
    The correct answer is using the right size slothead screwdriver on a slothead screw. This is an example of properly matching the tool to the job because a slothead screwdriver is specifically designed to fit into the slothead screw, ensuring a secure and efficient fastening. Using the correct size tool prevents damage to both the tool and the screw, and allows for proper torque application.

    You would turn in/destroy an  unsafet tool such as:

    • A.

      A wrench that's too small for the job

    • B.

      A saw with very sharp teeth

    • C.

      A hammer with a chipped or loose head

    Correct Answer
    C. A hammer with a chipped or loose head
    Explanation
    A hammer with a chipped or loose head should be turned in or destroyed because it poses a safety risk. A chipped head can cause the hammer to break during use, potentially causing injury to the user or those nearby. Similarly, a loose head can lead to the head flying off unexpectedly, causing harm. Therefore, it is important to remove such hammers from circulation to ensure the safety of individuals using tools.

    You don't need any PPE to work safely with hand tools.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because even when working with hand tools, it is still important to prioritize safety and use personal protective equipment (PPE) to prevent any potential injuries. PPE such as gloves, safety glasses, and ear protection can help protect against hazards like sharp objects, flying debris, or excessive noise. Therefore, it is necessary to use appropriate PPE while working with hand tools to ensure safety.

    At the end of a task where you used hand tools, you should:

    • A.

      Leave them where they are so they can be used later

    • B.

      Turn them in to your supervisor for inspection

    • C.

      Put them away in their proper storage place

    Correct Answer
    C. Put them away in their proper storage place
    Explanation
    After completing a task that involves using hand tools, it is important to put them away in their proper storage place. This ensures that the tools are kept safe and organized, reducing the risk of accidents or damage. Leaving them where they are may result in them getting lost or misplaced, making it difficult for others to find and use them later. Turning them in to the supervisor for inspection may be necessary in certain situations, but the general practice is to return the tools to their designated storage area.

    Correct Answer
    Yes
    No
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Yes,No" because the question asks if the person would like their name entered into the random drawing. The options provided are "Yes" and "No", so the correct answer can be either "Yes" or "No" depending on the person's preference.

  • 6. 

    What type of hand protection is required when a pressure washer is being used?

    • A.

      No PPE is required

    • B.

      Leather work gloves

    • C.

      PVC or heavy nitrile over-gloves

    Correct Answer
    C. PVC or heavy nitrile over-gloves
    Explanation
    When using a pressure washer, there is a risk of injury from the high-pressure water spray. PVC or heavy nitrile over-gloves provide the necessary hand protection to prevent injuries such as cuts, abrasions, and chemical exposure. These gloves are designed to withstand the high-pressure water and provide a barrier against any chemicals or detergents that may be used during the cleaning process. Leather work gloves may offer some protection, but they are not specifically designed for the hazards associated with pressure washing. No PPE is not required is an incorrect answer as hand protection is necessary in this scenario.
