Concrete may be easy to work with, versatile, and durable, but with a few basic precautions it can also be one of the safest building materials around. Relatively few people involved in mixing, handling, and finishing concrete have experienced any form of injury, and following the steps outlined below, even fewer are likely to occur.
Protect Your Head and Eyes Construction equipment and tools represent constant potential hazards to busy workers.
Protect Your Back. All materials involved with mixing concrete, (cement, sand, aggregates, and water), can be heavy and should be lifted properly.
Protect Your Skin When working with fresh concrete, sometimes the skin can get irritated or chemical burns can occur.
Placing and Finishing Waterproof pads should be used between fresh concrete surfaces and knees, elbows, hands, etc.
