ELECTRICAL/ELECTRONIC SAFETY Module/SubCourse: SS0713 Edition: 7

1. You are troubleshooting a piece of electrical equipment, and you notice you get a tingling sensation whenever you touch the equipment. This could be an indication of what? improper voltage short in the equipment nothing; this is a normal indication improper grounding 2. Before you begin working on electrical/electronic equipment, what is the first thing you should remove? your jewelry your coat all fuses your glasses 3. When a person experiences electrical shock, he often has delayed effects of electrical shock. Which of the following is a delayed action? Loss of muscle coordination ventricular fibrillation blue color of skin heart failure 4. Posting the safety SOP is the responsibility of the safety NCOIC. supervisor of the shop. unit commander. safety OIC. 5. Antennas mounted on a tactical vehicle should always be tied down whenever the vehicle moves. This is to prevent the antenna from breaking off.

the antenna accidentally hitting personnel. the antenna accidentally hitting a power line. All of the above. 6. When working with a radio transmitter, you must be careful of RF burn. When would this occur? when RT is keyed and you are within 2 inches of the antenna when RT is unkeyed and you are within 12 inches of antenna any time you touch the antenna when RT is unkeyed and you are within 2 inches of the antenna 7. One of the hazards of battery charging is Lead poisoning. acid fumes and burns. corrosion. unventilated work area. 8. A safety board is centrally located in any work area inside a building. It is used for what purpose? to aid in removing personnel from equipment when being electrically shocked to pass the IG inspection to aid in removing defective equipment from the work area to satisfy the local commander's requirements 9. When measuring voltage or current in an electronic circuit, you should use one hand while keeping the other free or in your pocket. steadying the equipment with the other. holding the test equipment with the other. holding the power switch with the other. 10. If 5 milliamperes causes an unpleasant sensation, how many milliamperes must flow through the body to be considered shock potential? 5 10 15

any amount 11. The most common electronic hazard is electrical shock, which is the result of high current. voltage and current. high voltage. All of the above. 12. You are working with equipment that has a standard 5-amp fuse, and you need to replace it. What type of fuse would you use? 5-amp slow-blow fuse standard 5-amp fuse any slow-blow fuse any 5-amp fuse 13. The term "high voltage" refers to voltages above 200 volts. 300 volts. 400 volts. 500 volts. 14. How far should the antenna be erected from power lines? minimum of twice the length of the antenna minimum of four times the length of the antenna minimum of three times the length of the antenna No distance is specified; it depends on the height of antenna. 15. The degree of shock depends upon dampness of the work area as well as the amount of current. the amount of voltage. the general health of the individual. All of the above. 16. When you are in the field and speed is required to set up equipment, what short cut can you take in grounding equipment?

Use WD-1 in place of a proper ground strap. Do not use a short cut for grounding. Do not drive ground rod the proper depth into the ground. Use a shorter ground rod. 17. The final application of safety principles and practices is the responsibility of tbe battalion commander. the chain of command. the individual. All of the above. 18. What is the killer in electricity? frequency of voltage resistance of the body current flow through the body voltage across the body 19. When an individual receives an electrical shock, what pushes the current through the body? ohms amperes watts voltage 20. When using a switchboard mounted in a tactical vehicle, what should be grounded? Neither one; the switchboard is protected by the shelter. vehicle only switchboard only vehicle and switchboard
