When working with concrete it is important to always protect your skin and eyes to avoid irritation or chemical burns. Safety glasses, long sleeves, long pants, rubber gloves, and rubber boots are good ways to protect yourself from making contact with concrete. If you do make contact with the concrete on your skin you should flush with water and a neutral soap for several minutes. If you get concrete in your eyes it is important to flush with water for several minutes. If irritation persists you should contact your healthcare professional immediately.
