Stone benchtop fabrication and installation checklist for WA workplaces

The Department of Mines Industry Regulation and Safety has developed a checklist for employers and workers engaged in the fabrication and installation of stone benchtops.

This checklist highlights safety issues with a focus on silica hazards.

It provides information on how to best manage those risks to minimise negative outcomes through compliance with occupational safety and health legislation.

If a worker is exposed to and breathes in silica dust they could develop:

  • chronic bronchitis
  • emphysema
  • acute silicosis.
