Explanation

1. High line voltage wires come into the mine at 12,800 volts or higher.  

1.

High line voltage wires come into the mine at 12,800 volts or higher.

 

Transformers transform this energy into usable power called "feeder" power. What voltage is that transformed power, typically?

A. 6,000 volts

 

Most circuits in the mine are 600 or 480 volt circuits.

B. 2,000 volts

C.

600 or 480 volts

D.

200 or 520 volts

2.

2.

Trolley lines are not insulated. Under what circumstances must they be

 

locked and tagged?

Trolley lines must always be locked and tagged or guarded when metallic tools or equipment could contact them.

A.

When trolleys aren't running

B.

When metallic tools or equipment could contact them

 

C. When clearance between wires and the trolley car is less than 10 feet

D. When the work shift is ended

3.

3.

Resistant materials are known as insulators. Which of the following is often

 

used as an insulator?

Rubber is the only insulator in this list. The other materials allow electricity to flow through them.

A.

Rubber

B. Aluminum

 

C. Water

 

D. The human body

4.

4.

What is electrical current?

 

A.

The amount of electrical pressure

Current is the flow of electrons through a conductor, such as copper wire, metals, water, and the human body.

B.

The flow of electrons through a conductor

C. A material that acts as an insulator

 

D. A conductor of electricity

5.

5.

Which is a hazard associated with distribution and junction boxes?

Distribution and junction boxes are hazardous because they carry high voltage electricity. If they are accessed incorrectly, shock or an arc flash could occur. Because they are locked, they are inaccessible to non-electricians.

A.

They carry high voltage electricity

B.

They are accessible to non-electricians

 
6.

6.

In a lockout/tagout area, locks and tags are used to:

 

A.

Indicate that equipment has been isolated from hazardous energy and prevent it from being

Locks and tags are used to indicate that equipment has been isolated from hazardous energy, and to prevent it from being accidentally restarted or operated.

accidentally restarted

B. Identify who owns the equipment

C. Identify what hazardous energy source is found in the equipment

 

D. Keep people out of the area

7.

7.

Which type of employee is responsible for de-energizing, locking, and

 

tagging equipment so it can be serviced or maintained?

Only an authorized employee is authorized and responsible for removing or isolating hazardous energy, and then locking and tagging equipment or machines so they can be serviced or maintained. No other type of employees should EVER attempt to remove locks or tags or operate equipment that is locked or tagged.

A.

Authorized employee

B. Affected employee

C. Other employee

 

D.

Employer

8.

8.

What is the purpose of lockout/tagout procedures?

 

A. To keep people safe in an area where there is hazardous energy

Lockout/tagout procedures keep personnel safe in an area where there is hazardous energy, by using locks and tags to limit access to hazardous equipment and authorizing specific personnel who are trained to isolate hazardous energy.

B. To ensure the use of locks and tags to limit access to hazardous equipment

C. To ensure that personnel who are authorized to isolate hazardous energy are

identified

   

D.

All of the choices are correct

9.

9.

What is an energy-isolating device?

 

A. A device that restricts energy to one circuit

An energy-isolating device is a mechanical device that physically prevents the transmission or release of energy. Examples of energy isolating devices are manually operated electrical circuit breakers, disconnect switches, line valves, and blocks.

B. A device that allows the sharing of energy from one circuit to another

C.

A device that physically prevents the transmission or release of energy

Why must surplus trailing cable be stored in cable boats or on mounted

 

reels?

Surplus trailing cable must be stored in cable boats, or on reels mounted on the equipment, or in some other way that will protect it from mechanical damage. Damaged cable could allow individuals access to live energy.

A.

To protect it from damage

B. To keep people from tripping over it

C. To keep it out of the way

 

D. To prevent people from touching it

MSHA requires specific items to be grounded. Which items must be

 

grounded?

MSHA requires circuit enclosures, transformer and switchgear enclosures, and mobile equipment to be grounded. A thorough safety program would also ground most electrical outlets and many types of equipment. Gas-powered vehicles do not need to be grounded because they are not fueled by electricity, and grounding is an electrical safety measure.

A.

Gas-powered vehicles, transformer enclosures, and office building outlets

B.

Transformer enclosures, circuit enclosures, and mobile equipment

C. Office building outlets, mobile equipment, and switchgear enclosures

D. Mobile equipment, gas-powered vehicles, and circuit enclosures
