Caesarstone provides Master of Stone training to ISFA members through new partnership

Caesarstone is continuing its commitment to lead the industry in safety standards by partnering with the International Surface Fabricators Association (ISFA), a non-for-profit trade organization representing fabricators in 13 countries who follow the highest code of ethics and fabrication standards for commercial and residential projects. Through this new relationship, Caesarstone’s Master of Stone training platform will reach beyond the company’s current partners to ISFA members, so they will have access to one-of-a-kind training designed to address health and safety issues, including silica dust, in the workplace.

“Fabricators are a vital part of Caesarstone’s success, so joining ISFA in their work to help members succeed makes good business sense for our brand but it also goes beyond that,” said Elizabeth Margles, Vice President of Marketing for Caesarstone North America. “It’s about working together to increase the entire industry’s understanding of how to protect all fabricators from the health and safety risks posed in the industry and to strengthen its future.

We hope every ISFA member will take Caesarstone’s Master of Stone training modules and provide access to all applicable employees, so the best practices shared within the training platform become the industry standard across the globe.”

The free Master of Stone training, which launched last year, is a short series of online modules that provides a certificate upon completion. The website also offers additional helpful resources, including a good practice guide, safety data sheet and more.

More than 600 fabricators in Canada and the United States have already earned their Master of Stone certificates, and the partnership with ISFA is just one way Caesarstone plans to continue to promote this to the industry in 2021.

“ISFA is very grateful for Caesarstone’s support and the company’s commitment to educating all fabricators, including our members, through the Master of Stone training center,” said Nancy Busch, executive director of ISFA. “Our members are always looking for additional educational opportunities to help further their business, and this extensive, online and free training program will be a great resource for them when it comes to health and safety.”
