1. Did you watch the YouTube videos titled " 3M Fall Protection - Fall Protection ABCDs”" AND "How to Put on a Fall Protection Harness | Safety, Hazards, Training, Oregon OSHA" prior to taking this quiz?
You must view the YouTube video titled " 3M Fall Protection - Fall Protection ABCDs" prior to receiving your certification (even if you received a passing score on this quiz).

2. You can fall from any height and be seriously injured or killed.
Fall fatalities aren't all about how far you fall and how hard you hit the ground, but also which body part hits. Striking your heat at any height can be fatal.

3. While utilizing a ladder to gain rooftop access, how much should the ladder reach above the rooftop?
When you’re working with an extension ladder for roof access, you need it to extend at least three feet above the roof line. This is much more than most people will realize, but a full three feet or 36 inches is necessary for a safe ladder set up. This gives the ladder some leeway and will help keep it from moving out of place as you’re climbing.

4. The angle of the ladder should be so that the ladder's base is one foot out from the ledge for each four feet of a ladder's height.
The ladder simply needs to be put at a 75-degree angle, which is simply the 4:1 ratio. The rule simply states that when using a single ladder, extension ladder, or whichever ladder that cannot support itself, the ladder should be one foot away from the wall for every four feet of wall height.

5. Ladders with visible defects such as broken rungs, cracked side rails, or broken steps must be:
To help prevent accidents and injuries associated with defective or dangerous ladders:

6. After a worker has taken a fall on their personal fall arrest system, it
If any part of a fall protection system has been used to arrest a fall, it must be discarded or removed from service until the manufacturer certifies that all components are safe for reuse.

7. When inspecting fall protection equipment, look for:
A fall protection system must be inspected before each use. Inspect each component thoroughly, including harness, lanyard, carabiner and self-retracting lifeline for any damage. If it fails to pass inspection, immediately remove from service the faulty component or components.

8. A fall arrest anchorage point must support a static load of 5,000 lbs. per person attached.
The structure to which a personal fall arrest system is attached must sustain static loads applied in the directions permitted by the fall arrest system of at least: 5,000 lbs for non-certified anchorages, or two times the maximum arresting force for certified anchorages (designed by qualified person). When more than one personal fall arrest system is attached to an anchorage, the strengths stated above must be multiplied by the number of personal fall arrest systems attached to the anchorage. Anchorages used for attachment of a personal fall arrest system must be independent of any anchorage being used to support or suspend platforms, and must support at least 5,000 lbs per user attached; or be designed, installed, and used as part of a complete personal fall arrest system that maintains a safety factor of at least two, and that is supervised by a qualified person

9. Clearance distance needs to be calculated prior to using a personal fall arrest system. Factors to consider include the height of the worker, free fall distance, location of the anchorage point, deceleration distance, and a safety factor.
Using a Shock-Absorbing Lanyard and D-Ring Anchorage Connector
• Then, add a safety factor of 3 ft. to allow for the possibility of an improperly fit harness, a taller than average worker and/or a miscalculation of distance.
• The total, 18-1/2 ft. is the suggested safe fall clearance distance for this example.
† NOTE: Should the shock-absorbing lanyard be used in conjunction with a cross-arm anchorage connector or other, the additional length of the anchorage connector must be taken into consideration.

10. Fall protection equipment should be inspected prior to each use. Equipment that does not pass inspection should be removed from service.
Fall protection equipment should be personally inspected before each use and at least once a year by a jobsite Competent Person (or more frequently if required by the manufacturer). Whether it be from heavy usage or exposure to harsh conditions, fall protection equipment can become damaged or worn to the point that it is no longer safe for use.

11. The basic components of a fall arrest system include the anchorage, full-body harness, and connector.
There are three vital components that make up a complete fall protection system. These are the ABC's of fall protection:
A - Anchorage/Anchorage Connector
B – Body Wear
C - Connectors
