In brief: Not very likely.
This occupation is not the same as some others and, although it is very labor intensive, it apparently does not work with too many chemicals other than those in cement.
Mercury is highly unlikely to be one of these as it is used in chemical reactions for chemically created products. While cement can be called a chemical reaction, it is a building material, and highly unlikely to involve mercury.
