Concrete Application Gloves

Concrete

The concrete industry knows how to put on a show!  58,000 people attended World of Concrete in 2018.  You can find attendees from the tradeshow performing a wide range of concrete related activities.  Here are the top segments within the concrete industry requiring a variety of PPE – ready mix contractors, concrete block manufacturers, stucco contractors, demolition/repair and concrete pumping services.  For each one of these, workers are almost always faced with unique hazards.

Out of all concrete hazards, wet cement causes the most hand injuries across the industry.  This occurs because concrete is extremely caustic and highly abrasive. Cement exposure to one’s skin can ultimately lead to 2nd degree burns. You can imagine then, workers want safety gear they can rely on. Beyond just gloves, workers need a wide range of PPE from boots, long-sleeved shirts, insulated gear, and protective eyewear. The Portland Cement Association, one of the most trusted in the industry, produces a great and informative video about safety around concrete.

As always, our goal is getting you into the best PPE for the hazards faced.  We highlight below the most common concrete hazards, along with safety product recommendations. In the event we do not cover your unique hazard, let us know. Feel free to drop us some feedback at the bottom of this page. If you are wishing to have direct consultation, we can assist there too! All you have to do is contact us below and we will have a trained 360° Safety Specialist contact you.
