Construction work is some of the most dangerous occupations on the planet due to the plethora of risks and accident-inducing situations that lie in wait with every passing turn. To this end, it is important that workers and their supervisors or managers adhere to safety regulations set aside by OSHA, a government safety agency that created regulations that must be followed to ensure worker safety. One of the riskiest jobs one can perform in construction is that of a cement worker. These individuals are charged with the responsibility of ensuring that the building’s façade is smoothed out through the application of cement to brick. They can work at high elevations or on ground level, and they are also responsible for mixing and divvying out cement to other workers. What many people don’t realize, however, is the fact that cement is highly caustic and has the potential to cause severe burns if mishandled by way of negligence. Cement burns, as they are caused, can eat away at one’s skin, cause ulcers, scabs and even make a limb turn gangrenous if left on the skin for extended amounts of time. If you were affected by cement burn as a construction worker and believe that supervisor negligence was what caused your injuries, you may be entitled to financial compensation, and we’re here to help.

Why Is Cement Dangerous to Human Skin?
Cement is a combination of compounds, some of which are very caustic or corrosive, meaning that workers must not be exposed to it. When this happens, the outer layers of the skin or epidermis start getting eaten away which then leads to blistering that weeps and after some time, has blood coming out of said blisters. Individuals with cement burns don’t realize that they have been affected until it is too late given the insidious nature of cement burns, and ER workers often see cement burn victims when it is already too late to do anything substantial for these individuals. If cement burns have progressed too far, gangrene may form which may even lead to the death of limbs and the need to amputate toes, and fingers.
