A Review of Slab Clamp Safety by the Marble Institute (MIA)

Posted on 27 October 2015 by cradmin

This video produced by the Marble Institute of America (MIA) is a primer on safety when using slab clamps to lift large slabs of stone or other countertop materials. It walks the viewer through the proper procedures and reminds that slabs can easily weigh more than 1,000 lbs. and can severely injure or even kill someone if there were to have a slab fall on them. It reminds that training is a key element to safety and a video such as this is just one step of a good safety plan.

Specifically the video hits on such topics as remembering to inspect slab handling equipment daily and driving home the fact that a minimum of two people should be involved in any slab lifting procedure.

Overall it is a good refresher on some key safety elements and could be of benefit to pretty much anyone working in a stone/quartz countertop shop.
