Natural Stone Institute Debuts Silica & Slab Safety Certificate Program

Posted on 28 April 2020 by cradmin3

The Natural Stone Institute has announced the debut of a new safety resource for stone fabricators and distributors. The Silica & Slab Safety Certificate is an 8-hour online certificate that provides training material for silicosis prevention, slab handing and creating a safety program.

This program, comprised of 20 courses, is a combination of webinars, course readings, and related videos and documents. The program must be completed by one designated  safety manager. After earning the certificate, the safety manager can then administer courses to employees. Participants are encouraged to share this program with their insurance carriers to discuss potential discounts on premiums.

Natural Stone Institute Accreditation & Technical Manager Mark Meriaux commented: “Earning the Silica & Slab Safety Certificate is a way to show customers and vendors that you take safety education seriously. It shows that you value safety both within your company and to all that you have contact with outside your organization.”

The Silica & Slab Safety Certificate is free to current Natural Stone Institute members. There will be a $599 administrative fee for non-member participants.

Video: Granite Slab Pre-Fabrication Inspection

Posted on 22 February 2019 by CRadmin2

The first step to fabricating granite is to complete a thorough inspection of the slab to detect any fissures or cracks. This can prevent unnecessary waste and delays. There is nothing more disheartening than having to call a customer to reschedule installation at a later date.

The following video is the first in a series presented by Fox Granite Countertops in New Braunfels, Texas. Even if you are already inspecting your slabs, it is often advantageous to get a look at how others are performing the work. If you believe this video is helpful, we may publish the other five videos in the series in the coming months. Let us know what you think at [email protected].

Simple Way To Improve Overstock Slab Inventory Use

Posted on 21 November 2017 by cradmin

This short video, put out by Maxwell Counters, shared their method for helping to improve the use of “overstock” slab material that had previously just been taking up space.

While the concept is relatively simple, it seems to have made a major difference in the ease at which they can sell leftover slabs of granite, quartz or other countertop materials and is worth a look, if that is a problem you may be facing in your own operations.
