However, testing employees on their knowledge of hazardous chemicals is not specifically mentioned as a requirement in the standard.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which of the following OSHA standards requires hotel employers to inform workers about the possible risks posed by chemicals they may use to do their jobs?

    • A.

      Exposure Control Standard

    • B.

      Hazard Communication Standard

    • C.

      Job Safety Analysis Standard

    • D.

      PH Standard

    Correct Answer
    B. Hazard Communication Standard
    Explanation
    The Hazard Communication Standard requires hotel employers to inform workers about the possible risks posed by chemicals they may use to do their jobs. This standard ensures that employees are aware of the potential hazards associated with the chemicals they work with and provides them with the necessary information to protect themselves. It also requires employers to provide training, labels, and safety data sheets for all hazardous chemicals in the workplace.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which of the following statements about a property’s hazard communication responsibilities is true?

    • A.

      If a Material Safety Data Sheet is not available for a chemical used by housekeeping, the substance should be considered safe.

    • B.

      All hotel employees must be trained in the safe use of any hazardous chemicals used throughout the hotel.

    • C.

      Chemical solutions from manufacturers are the only substances that should be listed on a hazardous chemical list.

    • D.

      A Material Safety Data Sheet should list emergency and first aid procedures if dangerous exposure to the chemical occurs.

    Correct Answer
    D. A Material Safety Data Sheet should list emergency and first aid procedures if dangerous exposure to the chemical occurs.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that a Material Safety Data Sheet should list emergency and first aid procedures if dangerous exposure to the chemical occurs. This statement is true because a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) provides important information about the hazards of a chemical, including its potential effects on health and safety. In the event of dangerous exposure to the chemical, the MSDS should include emergency and first aid procedures to guide individuals on how to respond and provide appropriate treatment. This information is crucial for ensuring the safety and well-being of individuals who may come into contact with hazardous chemicals.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    How flammable is this chemical?

    • A.

      Chemical identity

    • B.

      Hazardous ingredients

    • C.

      Fire and explosion hazard data

    • D.

      Reactivity data

    • E.

      Health hazards

    Correct Answer
    C. Fire and explosion hazard data
    Explanation
    The question is asking about the flammability of a chemical, and the correct answer is "Fire and explosion hazard data." This answer is appropriate because fire and explosion hazard data provide information about the potential for a chemical to ignite and cause a fire or explosion. This data can include information such as flash point, auto-ignition temperature, and flammable limits, which are crucial in determining the flammability of a chemical. Therefore, fire and explosion hazard data is a relevant and important factor in assessing the flammability of a chemical.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Is this chemical ever sold under another name?

    • A.

      Chemical identity

    • B.

      Hazardous ingredients

    • C.

      Fire and explosion hazard data

    • D.

      Reactivity data

    • E.

      Health hazards

    Correct Answer
    A. Chemical identity
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Chemical identity." This is because the question is asking if the chemical is sold under another name, which is related to its identity. The other options provided, such as hazardous ingredients, fire and explosion hazard data, reactivity data, and health hazards, do not directly address whether the chemical is sold under another name.

  • 9. 

    Is there anything in this chemical that is hazardous?

    • A.

      Chemical identity

    • B.

      Hazardous ingredients

    • C.

      Fire and explosion hazard data

    • D.

      Reactivity data

    • E.

      Health hazards

    Correct Answer
    B. Hazardous ingredients
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Hazardous ingredients." This is because the question asks if there is anything in the chemical that is hazardous, and the presence of hazardous ingredients suggests that there are potentially harmful substances within the chemical. The other options listed (chemical identity, fire and explosion hazard data, reactivity data, and health hazards) provide information about the chemical but do not directly address its hazardous nature.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Will extreme vibrations affect the stability of this chemical?

    • A.

      Chemical identity

    • B.

      Hazardous ingredients

    • C.

      Fire and explosion hazard data

    • D.

      Reactivity data

    • E.

      Health hazards

    Correct Answer
    D. Reactivity data
    Explanation
    Reactivity data is the most relevant information to determine if extreme vibrations will affect the stability of the chemical. Reactivity data provides information about the chemical's ability to react with other substances, including how it may react under certain conditions such as extreme vibrations. This data can help assess the potential for the chemical to undergo a violent reaction or become unstable when exposed to vibrations, which can pose a safety risk. Therefore, reactivity data is crucial in determining if extreme vibrations will affect the stability of the chemical.
