Cuts and Lacerations

These injuries are typically caused by cutting materials with snips, tying off and anchoring objects, and working around insulation.  Masons will need to be wearing cut-resistant gloves when sharp objects are present.

Dust

Masonry contractors often find themselves in dusty conditions! Lined eyewear styles are the ticket to keeping the dust out and your vision clear! When working dry mortar, dry cement, and using a dry saw, you'll need a dust mask, too.

Impaired Vision

Mixing mortar, operating a power saw, chipping stone, surface finishing, and cutting bricks are several reasons why masons wear safety glasses and goggles. You never know when flying debris will make its way into your eyes.
