The primary hazard associated with most flammable liquids is:
- Toxic vapors
- Fire or explosion
- Faulty containers
The Correct Answer:
B. The primary hazard associated with most flammable liquids is fire or explosion.
The flammability of a product can be determined by its specific gravity. If a chemical has less than 1 specific gravity, they are lighter than water. If any chemical has more than 1 specific gravity, they are heavier.
Flammable liquids can be defined as the chemicals that may evolve the flammable vapors (in the air) at a temperature less than or equal to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. The chemicals that are lighter than water (means having a specific gravity of less than 1) are the most flammable. Fire or explosion as the primary hazards is associated with the most volatile liquids.
