Using Cement Toolbox Talk (UK) Mobile App
Cement is a binder used in construction that sets and hardens and can bind materials together.
How does it work?
The most common types of cement are used as a component in the production of mortar in masonry, and of concrete, a mix of cement, water and an aggregate to form a strong building material. The Cement Toolbox Talk (UK) app explains that cement is manufactured through a closely controlled chemical combination of calcium, silicon, aluminum, iron and other ingredients. Common materials used to manufacture cement include limestone, shells, and chalk or marl combined with shale, clay, slate, blast furnace slag, silica sand, and iron ore. As with any compound, painful skin problems and chemical burns can occur when exposed to the highly alkaline substance. Dermatitis can also be caused by an allergic reaction to the chemicals in cement. Cement can also be an irritant to the respiratory system. Care should be taken when exposed to cement including use of PPE.
