  • 2. 

    If at any time you are unsure about a safety-procedure you should ask?

    • A.

      A friend in the class

    • B.

      The custodian

    • C.

      The instructor

    • D.

      The principal

    Correct Answer
    C. The instructor
    Explanation
    When unsure about a safety procedure, it is best to ask the instructor. The instructor is responsible for teaching and guiding the class, including safety protocols. They have the knowledge and expertise to provide accurate and reliable information regarding safety procedures. Asking a friend in the class may not guarantee accurate information, as they may not have the same level of knowledge or understanding. The custodian and principal may not be directly involved in the class or have specific knowledge of the safety procedures being taught. Therefore, the instructor is the most appropriate person to ask in such situations.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Safety glasses are required to be worn at all times in the shop to protect the eyes from potential hazards such as flying debris, chemicals, or projectiles. Wearing safety glasses ensures the safety and well-being of individuals working in the shop by minimizing the risk of eye injuries. Therefore, it is important to always wear safety glasses while in the shop.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Stains and finishes should be applied to the work tables.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because stains and finishes should not be applied to work tables. Work tables are typically used for tasks that involve cutting, hammering, or other activities that may damage or stain the surface. Applying stains and finishes to work tables would not only be unnecessary but also impractical as these treatments may not withstand the wear and tear of regular use. It is more appropriate to use durable and easy-to-clean materials for work tables instead.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Open-toed shoes are not appropriate in a shop because they do not provide adequate protection for the feet. In a shop environment, there may be heavy objects, sharp tools, or chemicals that can pose a safety hazard. Closed-toed shoes are recommended as they offer more protection against potential injuries. Therefore, the statement that open-toed shoes are appropriate in the shop is false.
