12 Health & Safety for Ordinary Portland Cement
12.1 Description of Substance:
A grey powder when mixed with water becomes a binder for building construction works.
12.2 Supplier / Manufacturer
May vary from time to time so please ask a member of staff.
Cement mixed with water when making concrete/mortars produces a strong alkaline solution. This is due to the lime and alkalis within the cement. If the damp/wet cement comes into contact with the skin and/or eyes it may cause serious burns or ulcerations. Eyes are very vulnerable and damage to the eyes will increase with contact time. High alkaline solutions in contact with the skin tend to damage nerve endings first before damaging the skin, therefore, chemical burns develop without pain being felt at the time.
12.4 First Aid
EYES: Wash eyes immediately with plenty of clean water for at least 20 minutes and seek urgent medical advice without delay. To avoid permanent damage to eyes a quick response is essential.
SKIN: Wash the skin area that came into contact with the concrete/mortar with a mild soap and water before continuing work. If pain or irritation persist, seek medical advice. Wet concrete/mortar on clothing should be removed and washed before using again.
IF SWALLOWED: Wash mouth out with plenty of water. DO NOT induce vomiting. Make sure the patient drinks plenty of water, if in doubt, seek medical advice.
INHALATION: If you breathe cement dust move to an area of fresh air. If nose or throat airways become inflamed seek medical advice.
12.5 Protective Clothing
EYES: Eye protection should be worn at all times when working with cement/concrete/mortar and dust proof goggles around cement dust. If cement dust/concrete/mortar gets into the eyes seek medical assistance immediately.
SKIN PROTECTION : Protective clothing should be worn at all times when working with cement/concrete/mortar. The protective clothing should ensure wet/damp concrete does not come into contact with skin. When laying concrete waterproof trousers, gloves, jacket and wellington boots may be necessary. Wet/damp concrete should not come into contact with unprotected skin; therefore care should be taken when kneeling. If cement gets into boots or other clothing, this should be removed and the clothing washed thoroughly before using again.
12.6 Chemical Compounds
(See technical Data Sheet- available on request)
Cements are not flammable and will not facilitate combustion with other materials.
Avoid contact with eyes and skin.
Wear eye and skin protective clothing.
