Please log in to take the exam.
1
Chemical reaction can degrade some protective clothing.
2
When clothing contacts a hazardous material is must maintain its structural integrity and protective qualities. This is known as:
3
Once a specific hazard has been identified, the appropriate clothing can be selected. Several factors must be considered with the most important being:
4
Four environmental factors affect the amount of stress workers face in a hot work environment. They are:
5
There is one protective material available which will provide protection against all types of contaminants.
6
Which of the following is a common problem associated with the use of protective clothing?
7
The predominant physical, chemical, and/or toxic properties of a material dictate the type and degree of protection.
8
Degradation is a term describing a chemical penetrating a protective garment because of its design and construction imperfections.
9
Each type of protective clothing has a specific purpose as well as limitations.
10
Protection against a corrosive compound is _____ protection from a compound which releases a highly toxic vapor.
11
The same chemical protective clothing can be used for all chemicals.
12
Chemical protective clothing protects primarily because of:
13
Knowing the specific hazards involved in the job is not important because you are wearing protective clothing.
14
Disposable boots, gloves, and splash suits:
15
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:
16
What is the result of a chemical reaction between a chemical contaminant and a protective material?
17
Once a contaminant contacts a protective material, the garment must be decontaminated until all the contaminant is completely removed.
18
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.
19
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.
