About Silicosis


Question: I recently came across an article about how many workers are suffering from Silicosis due to improper fabrication methods in countertop shops and I want to make sure that Accent is using the proper fabrication methods to not negatively impact workers.

Answer: Accent has achieved the Natural Stone Institute Accreditation and has proven that our fabrication and installation methods are best in class and that safety is a top priority. As part of the best-in-class fabricators we follow a fabrication process that lowers the levels of Silica in our operation to a level that is not harmful to our employees.

Only the finest companies in the industry can meet all the qualifications necessary to earn Natural Stone Institute Accreditation. NSI’s Accreditation Program represents nearly 150 companies which service almost the entire United States and parts of Canada. It is a multi-attribute, third-party verified credential that is earned only by those able to meet the highest standards for excellence in quality, safety, and customer service.


Question: So, what is Silicosis?

Answer: A type of long-term lung disease caused by breathing in tiny bits of silica, commonly found in sand, quartz, and other types of rock, over many years.


Question: What are you doing today to minimize Silica dust in your operations?

Answer: At Accent Countertops, the well-being of our exceptional and dedicated team is of paramount importance. We hold in high regard the commitment and loyalty of our long-serving employees.

To minimize silica dust exposure in our countertop operations, we employ a comprehensive set of measures. First and foremost, our staff is consistently outfitted with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to ensure their safety. Inside our fabrication shop, we employ water-spray systems, air filtration machines, and strategically placed water drains to effectively control airborne dust.

For the final polishing and finishing stages, our skilled craftsmen utilize hand-held tools equipped with water systems, minimizing dust emissions. Through the meticulous implementation of these dust control methods and the adherence to safe work practices, we remain resolute in our commitment to preserving the well-being of our team, protecting them from the potential development of Silicosis, and enabling them to lead healthy, fulfilling lives.

What our Clients Say About us

Accent Countertops installed quartz countertops which we purchased through Home Depot for our kitchen. They were very good about communicating with us every step of the process, and all of their employees were pleasant and professional. The finished project looks beautiful and we would definitely recommend then to anyone.
Accent countertops was wonderful to work with. Came and measured, and then later emailed a template using the exact slab we picked out, so we could see what the finished product would look like before it was even installed. They arrived when they said they would, and made sure the countertops were perfectly level and clean before they left. They were quick too! Only took a couple hours to get everything finished. We are very satisfied with their work and the product 😀
They were very communicative throughout the process. Installers showed up when scheduled and completed the work quickly and efficiently. The installers were great, answering all my questions and helping me feel comfortable with the install. Seam is almost invisible! Would recommend to everyone.
