Happy N95 Day!

From the CDC:


Welcome to year two of this NIOSH-approved observance, marking N95 day
as an official annual event. (We debated about decorating our offices
with N95s – but that seemed a tad wasteful). To those who missed the
memo last year, let us update you. Because N95 respirators are so
important to the health and safety of workers in so many different
industries, and because there is more to know about this personal
protective device than just when to slap one on, we have dedicated a day
to the promotion, celebration, dissemination, and proclamation of N95
information.

Important Information on Cement Safety

When cement comes into contact with skin, the
skin becomes hard thick and dry. It’s more than likely to cause the
exposed area to crack, it can also cause nails to become brittle and
inflame eyelids.
If water is added to
cement it generates heat and can actually burn skin. In some cases it
can lead to dermatitis, to read more on the proper handling of cement
