When doing a DIY on your home improvements, always follow the steps for your own safety.
Steps to follow for safety purposes:
It is essential that the eyes, skin, and lungs are fully covered and protected when carrying out any repairs to concrete structures.
- Goggles. Wear goggles when working with concrete, stone, and hardcore. Small fragments of debris can seriously injure the eyes. Ensure that the surfaces are clean, providing clear vision.
- Gloves. Wear rubber gloves to protect your hands from the caustic effects of cement.
- Face mask. Cement dust is harmful to the lungs. Wear a face mask when mixing the components together.
