3 Ways to Stay Safe When Working With Concrete Mix, Windham, Connecticut

If you’re working on a project that involves using a concrete mix or cement, it’s important to take certain precautions to ensure you don’t injure yourself in the process. While these materials are generally safe, as with any construction or home improvement task, it pays to keep a few basic safety tips in mind. Doing so will allow you to complete the project much more smoothly.

3 Safety Tips For Working With Concrete Mix & Cement

1. Wear Safety Goggles

Concrete mix can splatter when in liquid form and spray dust or debris if you’re still working on it as it hardens. To keep your vision protected, wear safety goggles at all times while using these types of materials. It may also be advisable to wear a hardhat depending on whether or not your project involves using heavy machinery.

Ready mix concrete, and similar building materials are delivered  in the concrete trucks.Whenever you are working with ready mix concrete,it is good to get help from a co-worker even if you think you can handle it on your own. Otherwise, keep your back straight and legs bent when lifting, and don’t raise anything off the ground until you’re certain you have a good grip.

3. Cover Your Skin

Concrete mix and other construction materials can cause skin irritation. To avoid any issues, wear gloves while working, and cover up as much of your skin as you can, even if the weather is warm.
