True or FalseCorrectIncorrect

Pesticides can be inhaled either as mists, dusts, or vapors. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Dust and Mist Respirators Dust and mist respirators are physical filters which only protect against pesticide dusts and larger spray droplets. They are not effective against fumigants and the many pesticides which emit vapors. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
For the Inhalation test place the palm of the hands over the cartridge assemblies or inhalation points and inhale. If no air enters and the face-piece collapses slightly, the respirator is properly fitted and the exhalation valve is closing property. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
For the exhalation test place the palm of the hand or thumb over the exhalation valve guard and press lightly. Exhale to cause a slight pressure inside the face-piece. If no air escapes, the face-piece is properly fitted and the inhalation valves are closing correctly. If air escapes, readjust the headbands. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
According to OSHA the employer shall provide respirators, training, and medical evaluations at a maximum cost to the employee of $25.00. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Once a pest has been correctly identified, its food preferences, harborage sites, behavioral patterns, biology, habits, potential for damage and options for control measures may be determined. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Spray rigs typically operate with an electric or gasoline powered pump. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Three parts for the procedures for cleaning respirators is as follows:
- Remove filters, cartridges, or canisters. Disassemble face pieces by removing speaking diaphragms, demand and pressure-demand valve assemblies, hoses, or any components recommended by the manufacturer. Discard or repair any defective parts.
- Wash components in warm (43 deg. C [110 deg. F] maximum) water with a mild detergent or with a cleaner recommended by the manufacturer. A stiff bristle (not wire) brush may be used to facilitate the removal of dirt.
- Rinse components thoroughly in clean, warm (43 deg. C [110 deg. F] maximum), preferably running water. Drain.
True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
After cleaning (and, if required, sanitizing), respirators will be stored in disposable, resealable plastic bags. Respirators and their filters/cartridges will be stored so that they are protected from sunlight, dust, chemical contamination, moisture, and temperature extremes. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect

The SDS includes information such as the properties of each chemical; the physical, health, and environmental health hazards; protective measures; and safety precautions for handling, storing, and transporting the chemical. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Toxicity refers to how poisonous the material is, TOXICITY represents the killing power of the pesticide. The more toxic the material is, the more dangerous it is to use. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Hazards are the dangers associated with using poisonous materials. The more toxic the material the more HAZARDOUS it will be for you to use. You must be extra careful when handling the most toxic pesticides. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
“LC50” – Fumigant Toxicity is measured in terms of the “LC50” which represents the Lethal Concentration of the fumigant in the air that is required to kill 50% of the test animals. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Each pesticide has different risks, so each product has specific instructions and safety precautions. The only way to know how to safely use a product is to read its label. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
The signal word indicates the acute toxicity (toxicity that occurs 24-48 hours after exposure) and hazard of the pesticide to humans and animals. It is a quick way to determine the toxicity.
“Danger Poison” represents the most toxic of all pesticides. These products also carry the risk of severe eye damage or skin irritation. This signal word must be accompanied by a skull and crossbones graphic and the Spanish word for danger, “Peligro.”
“Warning” represents moderate toxicity. The Spanish word for warning, “Aviso,” must accompany this signal word.
“Caution” represents slight toxicity.• Some pesticides do not contain a signal word because their acute effects on humans and animals are nontoxic.
