Drywall

Common Drywall Hazards

Find the right MCR Safety product that protects you against these common hazards.


Chemicals and Liquids

Contractors face hazardous substances during most stages of drywalling. From mixing plaster ingredients to handling additives, chemicals are always around. Splashing chemicals during the cleaning and prepping stages can cause problems for workers. And, there is also a concern for cement exposure during the finishing stages of drywalling, such as taping, bedding, and sanding. Proper PPE, including safety goggles and chemical-resistant gloves, is critical!

Drywall Mud

Drywallers spend substantial time mixing and applying drywall mud, which means they had better be wearing safety glasses and gloves. It's also a good idea to wear safety goggles when handling joint filler compounds, as goggles completely seal the eyes from all foreign substances.

Falling Objects

Every construction site requires steel toe boots, as there is always the possibility that tools, items, or materials may fall onto your feet. For drywallers, the concern becomes real when handling large panels of heavy drywall. You don't want those falling on your feet!

Fogged Glasses

Drywallers work mostly indoors. However, when they go from outside to inside regularly, safety glasses and goggles can become fogged. This mostly happens during extreme temperature fluctuations, but don’t worry - we've got you covered!

Impaired Vision

Flying particles and drywall dust cause eye irritation and are a potential hazard for countless workers. Drywallers should be wearing safety glasses and goggles at all times while on a construction worksite. However, they should definitely be wearing eye protection when cutting materials, mixing plaster, applying spackle, sanding, or finishing ceilings. Let us help keep your eyes fixed on the job at hand.

Material Handling

Installers are always lifting, holding, handling, and stacking materials, and their hands are always in use. It's smart to wear some form of abrasive-resistant gloves. We stock PU-dipped gloves, which provide an excellent sense of touch and protection from rough materials.

Obstructed View

When hanging vertical drywall pieces, sometimes a worker has to be looking up. In turn, safety glasses can become a problem if they’re not adjusted properly and cause an obstructed view. We make safety glasses with a ratcheting temple to avoid this problem.

Sharp Objects

Anytime you are working with power tools, cut injuries are a concern. Using hand tools such as spackle blades, chop saws, knives, and trowels can also easily cut workers' hands. Cutting out drywall to be replaced, cutting materials with snips, and replacing saw blades all offer injury opportunities. Don't worry; we know sense-of-touch is important for drywallers. We make featherweight cut protection that allows dexterity and sense of touch while protecting from sharp objects.
