Tips on Maintaining the Safety of Concrete Cutting and Sawing Jobs

Tips on Maintaining the Safety of Concrete Cutting and Sawing Jobs If you were to perform the task of renovating your home yourself, then there is no doubt that you would have to perform a concrete cutting and sawing job. While hiring the help of a professional is still the best way to go about this type of task, you can very well perform these jobs yourself as long as you have the necessary tools and equipment. It is also important that you ensure that you use the necessary safety gears that will allow you to minimize your chances of encountering any problem. Look into the following tips below and make sure that you consider them prior to performing any concrete cutting and sawing job in your home.

For one, make sure that you use the appropriate physical covering that will protect your eyes and nose from the dust that will arise from the concrete cutting and sawing process. You should know that the dust that will come from the sawed off area will damage the lining of the eyes and the nose if it comes in contact with them. Make sure that you use safety glasses and masks that will keep the dust off of these areas of the face.

In addition to wearing safety glasses and masks, it is also important that you put on a pair of heavy duty gloves that will protect your hand from any corrosive or sharp edges that will result from the process. Obviously, the area that will result from the concrete cutting and sawing process will be corrosive until it is subjected to the appropriate finishing measures. Wearing a pair of protective gloves will not only protect your hands from damage that may be caused by the sawed off surface, but it will also keep hands free from any irritation that may result from the concrete particles that will come from the cutting.

Since you would most likely be using a power tool to perform the concrete cutting and sawing process, then it is imperative that you employ the appropriate lubrication for the tools before you turn them off. This way, you can ensure that you will be able to direct it where you need it once you start the cutting process. Any oil or machine lubricant will do, as long as you place drops of it on the necessary parts of the cutting tools.

Finally, make sure that you clean of the debris that will result from the concrete cutting and sawing process as soon as you can. It will be best if you use a suction tool that will suck the concrete particles as soon as they are freed from the main slab. Keep in mind that these particles are extremely light and that they are, indeed, easily carried off by the wind. Try to get the help of a companion in performing any concrete cutting and sawing job, so that you will have the appropriate help that you need both in performing the cutting and sawing task and in cleaning up afterwards.
