The Natural Stone Institute announced its new webpage that allows easier access to Spanish language translations of safety and membership resources for the stone industry. This new page presents links to free safety resources, including downloadable documents, toolbox talks and course bundles in the Natural Stone University. It also includes links to materials available for purchase, including videos and safety posters that can be displayed in stone showrooms or fabrication facilities. Topics range from general stone industry safety to silicosis prevention, safe slab handling and OSHA compliance.
Gus Mojarro, National Operations Quality Control Manager for Stone Source and Vice-Chair of the Natural Stone Institute Safety Committee shared, “We know that 75 percent of stone industry injuries occur in the first year of employment. This makes it even more important to have these crucial safety resources available not only in English, but in Spanish as well.”
