Safe Fabrication

Protecting workers from respirable crystalline silica

We are committed to promoting the health and safety of all workers in the stone fabrication and installation industry.

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) long ago identified exposure to respirable crystalline silica as a health hazard to workers in many industries working with silica-containing materials, including quarried stone such as granite and quartz surface products (OSHA NIOSH HAZARD ALERT).

OSHA and NIOSH have implemented specific rules, regulations, and requirements to mitigate this hazard for workers involved in fabricating, finishing, and installing stone products.

We encourage members of the stone fabrication and installation industry to review the resources below related to fabrication/installation safety and OSHA regulations and requirements for preventing silicosis and other silica-related diseases, including dust control (e.g., wet cutting), air sampling and analysis, training, and respiratory protection.
