Not quite.

Some cosmetics, such as nail polish (UN1263), water-proof mascara (UN3175), and hair-dye kits (UN1993, UN2984, UN1479), may be considered hazardous materials in transportation, usually due to a flammable or oxidizing property.

Bobbing for apples would be no fun if apples didn't float. Which of these liquids is less dense than water, and will therefore "float"?






Not quite.

Liquid hexane's specific gravity is about 34% less than water's (1.000). The other three liquids each have a specific gravity more than 1.

When you ship a liquid hazardous material, the material's specific gravity (a measure of density) can affect the type and strength of packaging required to contain the material in transportation.

If he adheres to the Hierarchy of Controls, which of these steps would Dr. Frankenstein take before the others to address the hazard his experiment poses?





Not quite.

Substitution ranks second in the Hierarchy of Controls, after eliminating the hazard (i.e., physically removing).

The Hierarchy of Controls is organized from the most- to least-effective method:

  1. Elimination - Physically remove the hazard.
  2. Substitution - Replace the hazard.
  3. Engineering Controls - Isolate people from the hazard.
  4. Administrative Controls - Change the way people work.
  5. PPE - Protect the worker with Personal Protective Equipment.
