A Whole Mess of Safety Quizzes

Want to find out how much your employees know about a particular safety topic? Maybe you want them to realize that they really don’t know as much as they think they do in order to make sure they are receptive to training?


The Environmental Health and Safety Database website has got you covered. You don’t have to put together your own quiz. Just head to the “A to Z Safety Quiz” web page. They’ve got about 50 different quizzes so odds are you’ll find what you’re looking for.


Are you Ready for Marriage Quiz

Safety takes on many forms. There’s car safety, workplace safety, fire safety, home safety, and then there’s marriage safety! Not familiar with that last one? It’s simple… just never give this quiz to your wife. If you do, we can’t be responsible for your safety.

Below is the answer key as well as the results that you can use to score the quiz by.

This was taken from a comic book published back in the 1950s.


Are you an Aggressive Driver?

One of the books in my library at home is a book by the Harbinger Institute entitled “Leadership and Self-Deception”. It is obviously directed primarily to leaders but the premise of the book is that every one of us have certain issues and weaknesses that everyone around us can see clearly but which we ourselves are blind to. As I type this I’m reminded of my grandfather (who was British). My grandmother, in the passenger seat used to watch him get more and more irritated at other drivers on the road. Finally she would turn to him and tell him “Don’t get angry!” He would them get all red in the face and yell back “I’M NOT ANGRY!!!!”

That’s self-deception and it’s the topic of a quiz put out by AAA on their website. The quiz is entitled “Are YOU an Aggressive Driver?” and it contains 40 multiple choice questions in four different categories (10 in each). The categories include Anger, Impatience, Competing and Punishing.

Take the test and be honest about it. Self-deception is not only ugly but when it comes to being an aggressive driver it can harm you, others in the car and others on the road.

Are You a Safe DIY-er?

Last week I gave you a link to a quiz for you to take to see if you knew about table saw safety (See “Table Saw Safety Quiz“). This week, instead of pointing you to the Fine Woodworking website, I’m going to point you to the TLC website for a “Are you a Safe DIY-er?” quiz.

Once again, you’ve got 10 questions to answer. They’re pretty straight forward and easy to figure out but it’s a great way to be reminded about some basic safety rules that you may have forgotten.

If you like quizzes you can take a bunch more on the TLC “getsmart challenge” section of their website. They don’t have to do with safety but maybe they’ll help round out your education on a wide variety of subjects.

Table Saw Safety Quiz
