Health and safety considerations in the use of shotcrete are discussed. The dust conditions, rebound problems, and causticity problems that occur during the shotcreting are discussed along with methods of overcoming them. There are also problems concurrent with shotcrete after it has been in place for a few minutes or several days. These include lack of strength, residual causticity, and improper placement.
