Planning and Site Preparation

Always plan every step before any concrete is delivered. Proper planning avoids delays in unloading the concrete and if it needs to be placed with wheel barrows, make sure 2 or more are available.

Workers on site should always have protective clothing, work boots, and if required eye protection and hard hats.

AVOID Always avoid direct contact with concrete.
SITE ACCESS Clear access must be provided to allow the trucks unrestricted access to the site in all weather conditions.
CHECK QUANTITIES Advanced Readymix can check access and quantities for any project small or large.
APPROPRIATE PLANNING Plan the job to avoid delays once the concrete pour has started.

Weather Conditions

Temperature of 30°C and above and windy conditions concrete has to be cured by covering with plastic sheeting, spraying with a liquid membrane curing compound.

The practice of intermittent wetting down morning and night is not curing and can cause greater harm to the concrete by causing expansion and contraction, increasing the incidence of shrinkage cracking or craze cracking.

Hot weather increases the possibility of cracking. Temperature is not the only problem. Low humidity and high wind can cause moisture loss, resulting in shrinkage cracks.

PRECAUTIONS OF USE

HANDLING OF CONCRETE Prevent all contact with the skin.
EYE PROTECTION The use of safety glasses is recommended due to splashing or dust is generated.
HAND PROTECTION Water proof gloves recommended.
CLOTHING Polos and overalls is highly recommended to complete job.
FOOTWEAR Water proof safety boots high enough to prevent concrete from contacting the skin should be worn.
DAMPEN SUB BASE Dampen the sub-base before placement of concrete (do not leave the surface wet.
SHADE AND WIND BREAKS Make sure you provide shade and wind breaks to the work area.
