Safety information for working with wet concrete or mortar

When working with wet concrete or mortar, suitable protective clothing should be worn, such as long sleeved shirts, full-length trousers, waterproof gloves with cotton liners and site safety compliant wellington boots.

 Clothing contaminated with wet cement, mortar or concrete should be removed and washed before further use.

Should concrete or mortar get into boots, remove them IMMEDIATELY and thoroughly wash the skin and the inside of the boots before proceeding with the job.

If cement enters the eye it should be washed immediately and thoroughly with clean water and medical advice sought. Concrete or mortar elsewhere on the skin should also be washed off immediately.
