The latest health and safety news
Research shows that good health is good for business and better workplaces have better financial results. Every year over 170 million days are lost to sickness absence, according to the NHS. Research also shows that the longer people are off sick, the less likely they are to make a successful return to work. After six months absence from work, there is only a 50% chance of someone making a successful return.

A good test but a couple of points to mention.
The widely recognised hearing range for the human ear is 20Hz to 20Khz. This option is not available. 16Hz is not considered to be within normal range of the ear.
Dermatitis: according to the Barbour information there are 2 types of contact dermatitis. You are marking this as incorrect and adding contact urticaria to the list even though this is not considered to be contact dermatitis but a wheal and flare response. The HSE refer to it separately from contact dermatitis.
I agree with you Jason- the correct hearing range was not available as an answer, and your comments regarding dermatitis echo my own thoughts- and “incorrect” answers!
I agree also! Hearing range is 20 to 20.
I was very pleased with my 19/23
