Work and Safety Instructions
Cement powder consists of fine particles. Working directly with cement powder should ensure that the total amount of dust in the working environment does not exceed 10 mg./ m³. The inhalation of cement dust can cause burning and irritation of the respiratory tract. A protective dust mask must be worn at all times, when working with cement powder. Cement powder may also cause swelling of the eyelids and inflammation of the surface of the eye and cornea. To prevent these symptoms, protective googles with covered sides should also be worn. The contact of cement powder with moist skin may cause irritation. Prolonged contact with damp skin may also cause burns. Therefore, when working with cement powder, wear appropriate work clothes, use gloves and protective equipment. In case of contact with the skin, wash the affected area thoroughly with pH-free soap (PH7), and water. In the event of a burn or inflammation, seek medical attention immediately. In the case of ingestion of cement powder, do not induce vomiting. Drink large quantities of water, and seek medical help.

In the case of a cement spill, dry cleaning methods should be used to prevent the dispersion of dust or the penetration of dust into water systems.
