Worksafe NSW to Host Engineered Stone Webinar – Friday June 14th

The ban on engineered stone starts 1 July. On Friday June 14th Worksafe NSW will be hosting an online webinar to address the conditions for use, supply and manufacture of engineered stone benchtops, panels, and slabs.

If you are a person carrying out a business or undertaking (PCBU) that undertakes, or directs workers to carry out, work involving the manufacture, supply, processing, or installation of engineered stone benchtops, panels, and slabs, this is an important event for you to attend.

While members of the HRIA are not directly PCBUs, they are encouraged to draw customers attention to changes relating to hiring equipment for the use of cutting engineered stone on site.

The free webinar will be hosted by SafeWork experts and cover topics including:

  • the transition period to be implemented in NSW, giving businesses with contracts already in place (on or before 31 December 2023) time to finalise any supply and installations prior to 31 December 2024
  • what it means to ‘process’ engineered stone and how any processing must be controlled
  • how to notify SafeWork NSW if you intend to process any legacy stone. This includes any repairs, minor modifications, removal and disposal of engineered stone benchtops, panels or slab already installed.

There will be an opportunity to ask the expert panel questions after the presentation.
