The concrete and concrete products manufacturing industry faces a wide range of safety issues. Concrete is essential to the construction industry, but the well-being of your workers is even more important. Here are a few helpful suggestions to ensure employees are safe while at work:
One main cause for concern in this industry is skin hazards. Any employee who comes into contact with wet cement could develop skin-related problems because the material is abrasive, caustic and absorbs any moisture. To avoid contact, workers should always wear protective gloves and wear long sleeves.
Another problem is respiratory hazards. Employers should follow proper OSHA safety requirements and require their workers to wear respirators when working with concrete materials.
