Stone Bench Top Installation Safety Notes:

This SWMS covers the installation of pre-fabricated stone (such as granite and reconstituted stone materials) countertops/bench tops. This does not include the manufacture, cutting and polishing of the stone. Main hazards:

  • manual handling
  • crushing
  • trips, falls
  • inhalation of crystalline silica

Use stone dolly to transport stone to installation site.

If this is not possible, use a team lift. Team lifts must be coordinated and practiced. Ensure adequate communication and continue to check for obstacles during transport. Move slowly. Consider use of carry clamps with handles.

Always carry vertically and avoid twisting stone.

Note: For pre-cut sink/cooktop pieces, attach bars with suction cups parallel to each other in cut-outs. Ensure good suction before moving. Recheck suction after 20 minutes (if still required). Place all pieces and check all seams are aligned.


  • Use seam setters as per manufacturers instructions
  • Apply suction cups firmly – check firm attachment
  • Adjust seam to approx 1/6 inch
  • Apply polyester/hardner mix in appropriate colour
  • Close joint and scrape away excess using razor.
