Health & Safety Datasheet

Mixing Mortar

Dry or damp cement and wet concrete or mortar can cause irritation and burns to the eyes and skin. Suitable eye protection and PVC gloves should be worn. If contact with the eyes or skin occurs, irrigate or wash off with plenty of water. If irritation or burning persists, seek immediate medical attention.

Cutting

Using high speed cutters on concrete and stone products produces dust. If inhaled in excessive amounts over a long period this may cause long-term health problems. Suitable safety goggles and a dust mask should be worn.

Manual Handling

Most of our products are abrasive and heavy, some are very heavy. Appropriate handling precautions include wearing protective gloves and footwear and obtaining assistance when moving items weighing over 20kg.
