Challenges of Concrete Cutting and Coring
Ask any professional, “What are the challenges of concrete cutting and coring?”, and you will get a variety of responses. Some of EAI’s biggest obstacles in dealing with concrete are:
- Silica dust
- Saw kick back
- Blade fracture
- Collapsing walls
- Slips and falls
This list is not exhaustive, but just a sampling of what contractors must consider. As noted, these challenges and risks are both present to the structures and to the crew members working on them.
Identifying the hazard and assessing the risk is very important before starting any cutting and coring job. Maintaining equipment and checking that all saws and drills are working properly are some of the most basic, but crucial, steps to take when starting a job. These measures alone can prevent harm from occurring.
