    Hydrochloric acid is unstable even when properly contained and handled 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Hydrochloric acid is a stable compound when properly contained and handled. It is a strong acid that is commonly used in various industrial processes and laboratories. However, it can be corrosive and dangerous if not handled with care. Proper storage and handling procedures, such as using suitable containers and wearing appropriate protective equipment, can ensure its stability and prevent any accidents or hazards. Therefore, the given statement that hydrochloric acid is unstable even when properly contained and handled is false.

     Always pour acid in the water wall staring to prevent the generation of steaming hot water 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When diluting acid with water, it is important to always pour the acid into the water slowly and carefully, and not the other way around. This is because pouring water into acid can cause a violent reaction, resulting in the mixture splashing and potentially causing burns or other hazards. By pouring acid into water, the reaction is less likely to be vigorous and the heat generated can be dissipated more effectively, reducing the risk of steaming hot water being produced.

     If you’re calling in area containing high chlorine, keep your head high until you’re out of the affected area

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In areas with high chlorine levels, it is recommended to keep your head high until you are out of the affected area. This is because chlorine gas is heavier than air and tends to sink to lower levels. By keeping your head high, you can minimize the inhalation of chlorine gas and reduce the potential harm it may cause. Therefore, the statement is true.

     The most dangerous powder the water treatment plant operators are exposed to this powder activated carbon

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Water treatment plant operators are exposed to various chemicals and substances during their work. Powdered activated carbon is one such substance that they come in contact with. This powder is known to be highly dangerous due to its potential to release harmful dust particles when handled or used improperly. These particles can be inhaled and cause respiratory issues or other health problems. Therefore, it is important for water treatment plant operators to take necessary precautions and safety measures while handling this powder to minimize the risks associated with its exposure.

    All electrical circuits should be killed, if possible, before trying to control a class C Fire

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is important to kill all electrical circuits before attempting to control a class C fire because class C fires involve energized electrical equipment. By shutting off the power supply, the risk of electrocution or reignition of the fire is minimized. Additionally, using water or other conductive agents on an energized electrical fire can result in electrical shock or spread of the fire. Therefore, it is crucial to de-energize the circuits before attempting to control a class C fire.

     According to OSHA regulations, not every entry into a confined a space requires a confined space entry permit 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    According to OSHA regulations, every entry into a confined space requires a confined space entry permit. This is because confined spaces pose potential risks and hazards such as limited oxygen, toxic gases, or engulfment. The entry permit ensures that proper safety measures are in place, including atmospheric testing, ventilation, and rescue procedures. Failure to obtain a permit can result in serious accidents or fatalities.

     Any equipment that could suddenly start up or release stored energy is a potential hazard to operators 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement is true because any equipment that has the potential to start up or release stored energy can pose a danger to operators. This can include machinery with moving parts, electrical equipment, or even equipment that uses compressed air or hydraulic systems. If operators are not aware or prepared for these potential hazards, they could be at risk of injury or accidents. Therefore, it is important for operators to be cautious and follow safety protocols when working with any equipment that has the potential for sudden startup or energy release.

      How may spilled polymers be cleaned up

    • A.

      By using a broom and dustpan

    • B.

      By using a vacuum cleaner

    • C.

      By using a water spray

    • D.

      By using inert, absorbent material such as Sand or Earth

    Correct Answer
    D. By using inert, absorbent material such as Sand or Earth
    Explanation
    Spilled polymers can be cleaned up by using inert, absorbent material such as sand or earth. This is because polymers are typically non-soluble in water and cannot be easily cleaned up using a water spray. Using a broom and dustpan or a vacuum cleaner may not be effective in cleaning up spilled polymers as they can be sticky and difficult to sweep or vacuum. However, using an inert, absorbent material like sand or earth can help to absorb and contain the spilled polymers, making it easier to clean up.

      Toxic or flammable gases

    • E.

      Worn defective parts

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Faulty tubing
    B. Leaks
    C. Loose eyepiece
    E. Worn defective parts
    Explanation
    The operator assigned the responsibility of maintenance of the self-contained breathing apparatus should check for faulty tubing, leaks, loose eyepiece, and worn defective parts. These are crucial aspects to ensure the proper functioning and safety of the apparatus. Faulty tubing can lead to air leakage, compromising the effectiveness of the apparatus. Leaks can also result in the entry of toxic or flammable gases, posing a significant risk to the operator. Loose eyepiece can impair the operator's vision and hinder their ability to carry out their tasks effectively. Worn defective parts can affect the overall performance and reliability of the apparatus, making regular checks essential.

    E. Tanks
    Explanation
    Basins, pits, manholes, and tanks are typical examples of confined spaces found in water treatment plants. These locations are enclosed or partially enclosed areas that have limited entry and exit points, making them potentially hazardous for workers. Confined spaces in water treatment plants are often characterized by limited ventilation, the presence of hazardous gases or chemicals, and the potential for engulfment or entrapment. Therefore, proper safety precautions and procedures must be followed when working in these confined spaces to ensure the well-being of workers.
