The Marble Institute of America (MIA) has released an updated “Health and Safety in the Stone Business” technical module. The revised version includes Ontario-specific information and came as a result of collaboration between the MIA Safety Committee and the province’s Infrastructure Health and Safety Association. Based on the U.S. version, revisions include references to Ontario’s Occupational Health and Safety Act. The guide focuses on safety procedures for personal protective equipment (PPE), respiratory protection, hazard communication, and slab-handling. The information included has been incorporated from various safety videos and is intended for natural stone fabricators, importers, and distributors to provide to their employees. It is available at no cost in English and French at www.marble-institute.com/canada.
