Construction workers are in contact with wet cement products in the form of concrete (see Chap. 48, “Cement”). These workers may develop cement eczema (see Chap. 48, “Cement”). They are here defined as workers engaged on precast concrete building factories. Such factories are almost the same all over the world, with respect to pouring the concrete into molds and thereafter finishing and repairing.
