Welcome to your Qualified Person Quiz. You will receive your results via email, that will be provided at the bottom of this quiz. Full Name Email Address Phone Number 1. Your field people are calling to have you approve a lifeline device for residential roofing that the OSHA compliance officer called “inadequate for fall arrest.” The manufacturer of the device states in his literature that it can be used either for work positioning or fall arrest as a “universal” fall-protection device. You go see and apply which one of the following as a key test?Lean on the line to determine whether balance can be reasonably maintained.Check whether the labeling references OSHA/ANSI standards.Check if the harness is designed for fall arrest.Confirm that a work-positioning device must also be supported by a fall-arrest device. 2. What comprises a personal fall-arrest system (PFAS)?A body belt and lanyard.An anchorage, fall-arrest device, and body support.A lifeline, body belt, and lanyard.An anchorage and a fall arrest device. 3. What is deceleration distance as defined in OSHA Standard 1910.66, Appendix C?Distance from fall-arrest equipment activation to a complete stop.Distance from foot level to a complete stop.Distance from D-ring position before the fall to where the fall-arrest equipment is activated.Distance from D-ring position before the fall to a complete stop. 4. A scaffold is to be built starting at the 250-foot level under a platform that is to be extended. What should be used for an anchorage point during erection?Rope grabs with lifelines attached to each of the three tower legs (20 ft. apart).Two lanyards and harnesses per worker attached to scaffold legs.Retractable lifelines attached to flare-stack flange lugs.Horizontal lifelines between scaffold members. 5. A contractor is building a warehouse extension that will bring the building to 200 feet long and 150 feet wide. The ridge is only elevated 3 feet above the eaves. Even though the contractor indicated that fall protection was 100 percent and had workers who appeared to be tied off, a worker falls to the concrete floor from the ridge opening at 28 feet and is severely injured. The contractor proposes attaching the crane hooks of two mobile cranes together over the roof, to which workers will attach lanyards. What should be done?Ask for an engineering assessment.Deny the request based upon crane manufacturer’s literature.Permit use if the strength is sufficient.Permit use if energy-absorbing lanyards are used. 6. An anchorage must be independent and capable of supporting at least 4,000 lbs.TrueFalse 7. Which of the following might occur if a worker moves away from the anchorage point of a fall protection system?The fall device may not work or it may lock up.A swing fall can occur.The fall distance is increased. 8. A worker offshore is being lifted to detach a faulty environmental sampling system using the blocks of the rig (a jack-up type engaged in drilling twelve miles off the Texas coastline). He is being lifted in a harness designed for climbing assist that is made from sturdy cotton purchased approximately twelve years earlier. Suddenly, one witness hears a ripping sound and the worker (225 lbs.) falls from the harness to his death on the drill floor. Subsequent analysis shows corroded wire supports and further rotted materials. What was at fault?The worker’s brother said that during the previous week the victim was worried about somebody doing him in because of his race.Because the device was worn well beyond its intended lifetime, the employer is responsible for failure to inspect/maintain it.The device was being incorrectly used.No lifeline was used. 9. Maintenance of equipment is best done by:A Qualified worker.A Competent Person.A Qualified Person.The Manufacturer. 10. You have been purchasing rope grabs from a supplier for years, but not the rope lifeline, which comes from your construction warehouse. What potential problem do you face?An accident from an untested subsystem.No problem; it’s the equipment manufacturer’s problem.No control over the usage.Workers may object to using the equipment.
