The DIY Concrete Mistake That Could Leave You In Serious Pain

0 12

The dangers of wet concrete occur when it makes contact and reacts with your skin. The best preventative measure, then, is to cover up when working around this material. This should include waterproof boots, full-length coveralls, long-sleeved shirts, and waterproof gloves made specifically for use around chemicals. Don’t forget to wear either a face shield or safety goggles, just in case the wet concrete splashes. Concrete can also cause damage to other tissues, such as the mouth, eyes, and throat (via NCPC), so use maximum protection.

Worth noting is that concrete burns can take a few hours or longer to manifest. You may not even realize that you’ve been exposed right away, as this wet material can penetrate some clothing. For example, if you’re wearing short boots when working around concrete, some of the material could fall inside and eventually penetrate the skin around your feet and ankles. It can also penetrate some gloves. Since you may not realize contact has occurred for a few hours, this may lead to further harm from the burns.

You also should wear protective clothing when dumping bags of concrete into a bucket or wheelbarrow for mixing. If the dust makes contact with wet skin, it can cause a similar reaction, depending on the amount of moisture it encounters.
