Concrete is used on most construction sites. However, there are hazards resulting from the act of forming, placing and finishing concrete which needs to be considered.

Concrete work is hard physical labour where there are a range of hazards for the individuals who work in this field. Often there is a lot of pressure to get things finished and the work is carried out at a fast pace, but it is important to take the time to recognize the hazards of the work and mitigate them where relevant.

Through the use of toolbox talks and communication, many of the hazards when using concrete can be controlled.

Our concrete toolbox talk helps keep employees safe and reduce health and safety issues in workplaces where workers are involved in mixing, pouring or use of concrete as part of their work.
