Natural Stone Installation: Best Practices for Safety and Success
Publisher: Natural Stone Institute
Manufacturer: Natural Stone Institute
A centerpiece of the ongoing Natural Stone Institute stone safety initiative, this is the first-ever collection of video modules focusing solely on installation safety.
From residential projects to small, mid-range, and major construction environments, the modules explain the elements required to keep stone and tile crews safe on the ground and while using portable lifting devices or scaffolds. The modules focus on the fact there is a striking difference between shop safety, where the environment is a familiar, to being on location, where each location is different and requires a clear plan of action.
Each of the modules is self-contained, but arranged so that each can be viewed separately or as part of an overall installation safety program.
- Overview of installation safety
- Identifying safety concerns early in the process
- Requirements for personal protective equipment
- Installation case studies
- Best practices for material loading and unloading
- Manpower and equipment
- Large-scale commercial installations
- Tile-setting best practices
From what to wear on the job to maintaining the right attitude on the job site, this program is a must for every stone company’s safety library. It was created by a team of the stone industry’s leading experts and filmed at sites across the country.
