- Hazards. Cement mixed with water when making concrete/mortars a strong alkaline solution is produced, this is due to lime and alkalis within the cement. If the damp, wet cement comes in to contact with the skin or eyes, it may cause serious burns or ulceration’s. Eyes are very vulnerable and damage to the eyes will increase with contact time. High alkaline solutions in contact with the skin tend to damage nerve endings first before damaging the skin, therefore, chemical burns develop without pain being felt at the time.
- First Aid. Eyes: Wash eyes immediately with plenty of clean water for at least 20 minutes and seek urgent medical advice without delay. To avoid permanent damage to eyes, a quick response is essential.
Skin: Wash the skin area that came in contact with the concrete/mortar with mild soap and water before continuing work. If pain or irritation persists, seek medical advice. Wet concrete/mortar on clothing should be removed and washed before using again.
If Swallowed: Wash mouth out with plenty of water, If in doubt – seek medical advice.
Inhalation: If you breathe cement dust, move to an area of fresh air. If nose or throat airways become inflamed, seek medical advice.
Eyes: Eye protection should be worn at all times when working with cement/concrete/mortar and dust proof goggles around cement dust. If cement dust/concrete/mortar gets into eyes, see section 4. First Aid Eyes.
Skin Protection: Protective clothing should be worn at all times when working with cement/concrete/mortar. The protective clothing should ensure wet/damp concrete does not come into contact with skin. When laying concrete, waterproof trousers, gloves, jacket and wellington boots may necessary. Wet/damp concrete should not come into contact with unprotected skin, therefore care should be taken when kneeling. If cement gets into boots or other clothing – this should be removed, the clothing washed thoroughly before using again.
