The Natural Stone Institute will present a live version of their new Silica & Slab Safety Certificate on Tuesday, January 23 from 1:00pm-5:00pm at StonExpo at TISE in Las Vegas.
During this session, attendees will learn the key components of a stone fabrication safety program and gain insights into safe slab handling and reducing exposure to respirable crystalline silica (RCS). Fabrication shop owners, safety managers, and other key employees will leave with the tools needed to improve workplace safety, maintain OSHA compliance, and train employees to ensure a safe and secure work environment for the entire team. This four-hour session offers stone professionals a way to earn the Silica & Slab Safety Certificate in a reduced amount of time and in a live setting where they can actively ask questions and learn from experts and their peers.
NSI Accreditation & Technical Manager Mark Meriaux, who will facilitate the session, commented: “We know that keeping workers safe from respirable crystalline silica is front of mind for many natural stone fabricators. This session will be a helpful way for fabricators to make sure they understand the best practices for preventing silicosis and have the resources they need to make sure everyone on staff is as safe as possible.”
