Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Fuel cylinders must be stored at least how many feet from combustibles?

    • A.

      10

    • B.

      20

    • C.

      25

    • D.

      35

    Correct Answer
    B. 20
    Explanation
    Fuel cylinders must be stored at least 20 feet from combustibles to ensure safety. This distance helps to prevent any potential fire or explosion hazards that could occur if the cylinders were too close to flammable materials. By keeping a safe distance, the risk of ignition and spreading of fire is minimized, protecting both the cylinders and the surrounding area.

    Shielding is a process used to protect the eyes from welding fume.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Shielding is not a process used to protect the eyes from welding fume. Instead, welding helmets or goggles with appropriate filters are used to provide eye protection from welding fumes and other hazards. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Along with infrared radiation and intense visible light what other physical welding hazard is there?

    • A.

      Gamma Radiation

    • B.

      Blunt Trama

    • C.

      Ultraviolet Radiation

    • D.

      Intense Gravity

    Correct Answer
    C. Ultraviolet Radiation
    Explanation
    Ultraviolet radiation is a physical welding hazard that, along with infrared radiation and intense visible light, poses a risk to welders. Ultraviolet radiation is emitted during the welding process and can cause damage to the skin and eyes. Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet radiation can lead to sunburn, skin aging, and an increased risk of developing skin cancer. Therefore, it is important for welders to take proper safety precautions, such as wearing protective clothing and using appropriate shielding, to minimize their exposure to ultraviolet radiation.

    You should not use oxygen as a substitute for air.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Using oxygen as a substitute for air is not recommended because air is a mixture of gases, including oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and other trace gases. Oxygen alone cannot provide all the necessary gases required for respiration and maintaining a healthy atmosphere. Breathing pure oxygen for an extended period can also have harmful effects on the body. Therefore, it is advisable not to use oxygen as a substitute for air.

    As long as they are secure fuel cylinders can be stored on their side.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Fuel cylinders should not be stored on their side, even if they are secure. This is because storing them in a horizontal position can increase the risk of leakage or damage to the cylinder. It is recommended to store fuel cylinders in an upright position to ensure their stability and prevent any potential hazards.
