    Explanation
    If you discover children playing on a work site, the immediate priority should be their safety. Escorting them to a safe place at once is the most appropriate action to take in this situation.

Reporting it to your supervisor, calling the police, and informing the HSE can be done afterwards to ensure that the necessary authorities are aware of the situation and can take appropriate actions.

    Correct Answer
    B. Go to the fire assembly point
    Explanation
    When the fire alarm sounds, the correct action to take is to go to the fire assembly point. This is because the fire alarm indicates that there is a potential fire hazard, and it is important to evacuate the building and gather at a designated safe location. Going to the fire assembly point allows for a headcount and ensures that everyone is accounted for in a safe area away from the potential danger.

    • A.

      Water

    • B.

      Foam

    • C.

      Powder

    • D.

      Co2

    Correct Answer
    D. Co2
    Explanation
    CO2 fire extinguishers are colored black because they contain carbon dioxide gas, which is a non-flammable and non-toxic agent used to suppress fires. The black color is used to easily identify and differentiate CO2 extinguishers from other types. CO2 extinguishers are primarily used for electrical fires and flammable liquid fires, as they displace oxygen and cool down the fire, effectively extinguishing it.

  • 6. 

    What type of fire would a black extinguisher be best at putting out

      Oil fire

    • B.

      Paper fire

    • C.

      Electrical fire

    • D.

      Metal fire

    Correct Answer
    C. Electrical fire
    Explanation
    A black extinguisher would be best at putting out an electrical fire because it is specifically designed for that type of fire. Electrical fires involve the flow of electricity, which can be dangerous to extinguish with water or other types of extinguishers. A black extinguisher contains a non-conductive agent, such as carbon dioxide or dry chemical, which can safely smother the fire without conducting electricity. This type of extinguisher is commonly used in areas with electrical equipment or wiring, such as server rooms or electrical panel rooms.

    • B.

      Supervisor only

    • C.

      Manager only

    • D.

      Health & safety manager only

    Correct Answer
    A. Anyone who discovers a fire
    Explanation
    In case of an emergency, anyone who discovers a fire should raise the fire alarm. This is because it is important to notify others about the fire as quickly as possible in order to ensure the safety of everyone in the vicinity. It is not limited to a specific role or position, as the priority is to alert everyone and initiate the necessary evacuation procedures.

    You find a crack in your safety helmet, what should you do

      Apply glue to cracked surface

    • B.

      Get a replacement on your next break

    • C.

      Carry on working as most of the helmet is fine

    • D.

      Get a replacement immediately

    Correct Answer
    D. Get a replacement immediately
    Explanation
    If you find a crack in your safety helmet, it is important to get a replacement immediately. A cracked helmet can compromise its effectiveness in protecting your head from potential hazards. Applying glue to the cracked surface may not provide a reliable solution as it may not fully restore the helmet's strength and integrity. Continuing to work with a cracked helmet or waiting until the next break to replace it can put your safety at risk. Therefore, it is crucial to prioritize your safety and obtain a replacement helmet as soon as possible.

    PPE stands for Personal Protective Equipment, which refers to any equipment or clothing worn by individuals to protect themselves from potential hazards in the workplace. This can include items such as helmets, gloves, goggles, masks, or protective clothing. PPE acts as a physical barrier between the person and the potential danger, providing protection against injuries or illnesses. Therefore, PPE is a physical means of protection.

The HSE plays a crucial role in preventing work-related accidents, injuries, and illnesses, and promoting overall well-being in the workplace.
