At Caesarstone, we’re driven by a passion for design, the determination to consistently innovate quartz surfaces, and our responsibility to protect the people working in our industry. While design inspiration and installation tips are incredibly useful, health & safety information is crucial in supporting the well-being of our fabricators, installers, and everyone involved in quartz fabrication. Read on for more on the proactive steps we’re taking to help. If you missed the previous blogs in our Professional Fabrication Series, you can find them here and be sure to check out this video for a full review of the quartz countertop fabrication process.

Tools and Resources

Though many fabricators prefer working with quartz because it is unlikely to crack and is easy to polish, there is the hazard of being exposed to silica dust. To promote a safe working environment for all, we created our Master of Stone program. From information on airborne dust monitoring to the importance of wearing the correct PPE to proper cleaning, maintenance, and hygiene, it’s a comprehensive guide to hazard prevention in the stone fabrication industry.
