Gary’s Safety Tips

Hello, everyone! Today, I want to talk about something that might not be the most glamorous topic, but it’s something that’s incredibly important if you work in the construction industry. I’m talking about working with concrete screed and the dangers that come with it.

Concrete screed is a material that’s commonly used to level and smooth out concrete surfaces. It’s a mixture of cement, sand, and water that’s poured onto a concrete surface and then leveled using a tool called a screed. While it might seem like a relatively harmless material to work with, there are some very real dangers associated with it that you need to be aware of.

One of the biggest dangers of working with concrete screed is the risk of respiratory problems. The fine particles that are released when you’re mixing and pouring the screed can be incredibly harmful if you inhale them. These particles can get into your lungs and cause all sorts of problems, from simple irritation to more serious conditions like asthma and even lung cancer.

To protect yourself from these respiratory dangers, it’s important to wear a mask that’s designed to filter out these particles. A basic dust mask won’t be enough to protect you, so make sure you’re wearing a mask that’s specifically designed for working with concrete. And make sure that you’re wearing the mask correctly, with a snug fit over your nose and mouth.

Another danger associated with working with concrete screed is the risk of skin irritation. The materials used to make screed can be very caustic and can cause skin to become red, itchy, and inflamed. This can be particularly problematic if you have sensitive skin or if you’re working with the material for extended periods of time.

To protect your skin, it’s important to wear long-sleeved shirts and pants, as well as gloves that are specifically designed for working with concrete. And if you do experience any skin irritation, be sure to clean the affected area thoroughly and seek medical attention if necessary.

In addition to these health risks, there are also some safety concerns that you need to be aware of when working with concrete screed. For example, the material can be incredibly slippery when it’s wet, which can make it easy to slip and fall. And because screed is often poured at a height, there’s a risk of falling if you’re not careful.

To stay safe while working with concrete screed, make sure you’re wearing slip-resistant shoes with good traction. And if you’re working at a height, make sure you’re using proper fall protection equipment, such as a harness and safety rope.

Finally, it’s important to follow proper handling procedures when working with concrete screed. This includes making sure that the material is properly mixed and poured, and that you’re using the right tools for the job. And if you’re not sure how to handle a particular aspect of working with screed, don’t be afraid to ask for help or advice from someone who has more experience.

In conclusion, working with concrete screed can be a dangerous job, but with the right precautions and safety measures, you can minimize your risk of injury or illness. Remember to wear the right protective gear, follow proper handling procedures, and always stay aware of your surroundings. By doing so, you can help ensure that you and your colleagues stay safe and healthy while working with this important material.
