Fixed hot work areas must be _______________ from any combustible material and combustible waste.

Answer: Kept 35 feet away
Explanation:
Hot work areas involve activities such as welding, cutting, and brazing that generate sparks, flames, or heat. To ensure safety, these areas must be kept a certain distance away from any combustible material or waste to prevent the risk of fire or explosion. The correct answer, "kept 35 feet away," indicates that a distance of 35 feet is required to maintain a safe separation between the hot work area and any potential sources of ignition.
11.

Ducts and conveyor systems that might carry sparks to distant combustibles must be:

Answer: Shielded, shut down, or both
Explanation:
Ducts and conveyor systems that might carry sparks to distant combustibles must be shielded, shut down, or both. This is because sparks can ignite nearby combustible materials and cause a fire. By shielding the ducts and conveyor systems, the sparks are prevented from reaching the combustibles. Shutting down the systems also eliminates the risk of sparks being generated and transported. Using both measures together provides an extra layer of protection against potential fires. Leaving the systems open and uncovered or turned on and unattended would increase the risk of fire hazards.
12.

Under no circumstances should hot work be done within ___________ of flammable or explosive materials.

Answer: 35 feet
Explanation:
Hot work, such as welding or cutting, produces sparks and heat that can ignite flammable or explosive materials.

The correct answer of 35 feet indicates that hot work should not be done within this distance of flammable or explosive materials.
13.

Gasoline and propane are:

Answer: Flammable materials
Explanation:
Gasoline and propane are considered flammable materials because they have low flash points and can easily ignite when exposed to a spark or flame. They are commonly used as fuels due to their ability to burn and release energy. However, their flammability also poses a potential hazard, as they can cause fires and explosions if not handled and stored properly. Therefore, it is important to take necessary precautions and follow safety guidelines when working with gasoline and propane.
14.

It is not usually the flame that causes a fire. Instead, it is the:

Answer: Thousands of sparks and pieces of hot metal that are generated when using the torch.
Explanation:
When using a torch, thousands of sparks and pieces of hot metal are generated. These sparks and hot metal can easily ignite flammable materials around them, causing a fire. The flame itself is not usually the direct cause of the fire, but rather the sparks and hot metal that it produces. Therefore, it is important to be cautious when using a torch to prevent any potential fires from occurring.
15.

For all hot work, the inspection must be conducted:

Answer: 30 minutes after completion of torch operations.
Explanation:
The correct answer is 30 minutes after completion of torch operations. This time frame allows for sufficient cooling of the hot work area and equipment, reducing the risk of fire or other hazards. Waiting for 30 minutes ensures that any smoldering or residual heat is extinguished before conducting the inspection. Conducting the inspection too soon could lead to overlooking potential dangers, while waiting too long may allow hazards to go unnoticed or worsen. Therefore, 30 minutes strikes a balance between safety and efficiency in conducting the inspection.

A compressed gas container must not be rolled on its side or its rim. It must be moved only:

Answer: By using approved lifting equipment
Explanation:
A compressed gas container should not be rolled on its side or its rim because it can cause damage to the container and potentially lead to a leakage or explosion. Therefore, it must be moved using approved lifting equipment, which is specifically designed to handle such containers safely and securely. Using our hands may not provide enough stability and control, while using an elevator filled with people or throwing it down from a height can be extremely dangerous and can cause harm to individuals and property.
