  22. Test time • The following are some examples of materials you may face. Please answer the questions

  23. What Orange Guide would you use to find needed preliminary information if there was material leaking from this unit?

  24. Guide 111 “Mixed Load/Unidentified Cargo”. Because you cannot specifically identify a hazardous material you would use that Guide and then pursue identification using other means.

  25. Which Orange Section Guide would you use if there is an incident involving this material?

  26. Guide 136. Because you cannot identify the material but can identify the placard, turn to the Placards on Page 17 and look at the circled number by the placard

  27. 4 Digit UN Number Name this material and what Orange Section Guide would you use? Is this a flammable liquid or gas? Bulk Shipments of Hazardous Materials

  28. 4 Digit UN Number The material is Acetone and you would use Guide 127. Use the Yellow Section to identify the material. It is a Flammable Liquid. The 3 on the bottom of the placard identifies this as a liquid. Hazard Class 2 would be a gas Bulk Shipments of Hazardous Materials

  29. Identify this material and what type of material is Hazard Class 8?

  30. This is caustic alkali liquid n.o.s. (not otherwise specified) and this material is a corrosive

  31. What do you not want to happen to this material?

  32. Get wet. Blue placarded Hazard Class 4 materials are Dangerous When Wet

  33. This railcar has derailed and spilled a small amount of material. What is the initial isolation distance and evacuation distance of a small spill during the day?

  34. 100ft (30 meters) isolation and .1 mi (.1 km) evacuation distance. This material is highlighted requiring you to turn to the Table of Initial Isolation and Protective Actions in the Green Section

  35. It is currently raining, causing the spilled material to get wet. What toxic gas does this material produce when wet?

  36. Hydrogen Sulfide. Turn to the Table of Water Reactive Material in the back of the Green Section. Find UN 1340. The gas is H2S. Use the guide on the bottom to identify Hydrogen Sulfide

  37. Give me the UN Number and Orange Section Guide for this material?

  38. UN 1046; Guide 121. Use the Blue Section

  39. Is this a Poison Liquid or Poison Gas? How can you tell?

  40. It is a Poison Gas. The 2 on the bottom of the placard indicates Hazard Class 2 Poison Gas. If it was a solid or liquid, it would be Hazard Class 6
