When you're working with concrete, you should always wear safety glasses and gloves. I also recommend having a mask on. When you're mixing concrete, there are a lot of particles that are flying that can be damaging for your lungs. It's good to have a mask on so you're not breathing in those fumes. It’s also recommended that you wear jeans, not shorts, because they protect your skin from being irritated by the concrete. Wear a long sleeve shirt to protect your arms as well.
