CSCS Fire Extinguishers Mock Test

The CSCS health and safety practice test below is another one of our newly introduced interactive CSCS mock tests. For this mock exam we’ll be covering some of the commonly asked CSCS test questions relating to fire extinguishers and their uses.

Regardless of the type of test you’re taking, you’ll need to have basic knowledge about the different types of fire extinguishers commonly used in the workplace.

You should be able to correctly identify the 5 common types of fire extinguishers in use today. These are water, foam, CO2, dry powder and wet chemical fire extinguishers.

Some can be used on different types of fires and some can only be used on a specific type of fire; so it goes without saying that if you want to pass your CSCS Health, Safety and Environment Test you must be able to correctly identify which type of fire extinguisher to use if there’s a fire. This CSCS fire extinguisher mock test has 15 multiple choice questions and all the correct answers are available after you’ve submitted your answers. Good luck!

1. When using a CO2 fire extinguisher you should be aware that the nozzle will become ___.

2. Which colour coding does foam fire extinguishers fall under?

3. The colour coding for a dry powder fire extinguisher is ___.

4. Which two types of fire extinguishers should you avoid using in confined spaces? (Choose 2 answers)

5. Which of these fire extinguisher is most suitable for electrical fires?

6. Which of the following is NOT a class A material?

7. Which category does titanium and aluminium materials fall under?

8. Which types of fire extinguishers were designed specifically for tackling Class F fires?

9. Besides a CO2 fire extinguisher, which type of fire extinguisher can you use on electrical fires?
