Safety Equipment

You must take reasonable precautions when working with plaster.Anyone who is involved in mixing plaster should wear quality respiration equipment. Clouds of cement, lime, clay, and sand will be in the air. Don't invite the stuff into your lungs. Eye protection is likewise recommended for all mixers and plasterers. Splatters can occur at any time — keep them out of your eyes. Quality work gloves are a must,maybe two or three pairs per person, since they are bound to get soaked. Industrial-quality rubber gloves are another option. The mixing, moving, and application of plaster is hard physical work. Be aware of the onset of fatigue and take breaks as required. Injury is most likely to occur when you become exhausted. An eye washing kit should always be onsite during plastering.
