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
- acute silicosis.
