Please log in to take the exam.
1
Four environmental factors affect the amount of stress workers face in a hot work environment. They are:
2
When clothing contacts a hazardous material is must maintain its structural integrity and protective qualities. This is known as:
3
Protection against a corrosive compound is _____protection from a compound which releases a highly toxic vapor.
4
Disposable boots, gloves, and splash suits:
5
The same chemical protective clothing can be used for all chemicals
6
Chemical reaction can degrade some protective clothing.
7
Knowing the specific hazards involved in the job is not important because you are wearing protective clothing.
8
Each type of protective clothing has a specific purpose as well as limitations.
9
The predominant physical, chemical, and/or toxic properties of a material dictate the type and degree of protection
10
Once a contaminant contacts a protective material, the garment must be decontaminated until all the contaminant is completely removed.
11
Strength, as it applies to chemical protective clothing, would be based on the clothing’s resistance to tears, punctures and abrasions as well as tensile strength.
12
There is one protective material available which will provide protection against all types of contaminants.
13
If the body can’t dispose of excess heat, it will store it. When this happens, the body’s core temperature rises and the heart rate increases.
14
Chemical protective clothing protects primarily because of:
15
Once a specific hazard has been identified, the appropriate clothing can be selected. Several factors must be considered with the most important being:
16
A contaminant in contact with a protective material establishes a concentration gradient. When the contaminant passes through the protective material to the inside surface it condenses there. This is called:
17
What is the result of a chemical reaction between a chemical contaminant and a protective material?
