Engineered Stone Changes 2024

A significant announcement reverberated through the construction and design sectors on December 13, 2023, as Ministers unveiled plans for a comprehensive ban on engineered stone, slated to take effect on July 1, 2024. This move signifies a pivotal step in addressing major safety concerns associated with silica exposure, a prevalent issue in engineered stone work. Responding to mounting awareness of workplace safety risks linked to silica exposure, Azura Building Group is committed to informing clients and partners about recent developments in the engineered stone industry.  Understandably, Azura Building Group value the safety of all staff and workers and regard the industry ban as a welcome change.  

The Housing Industry Association (HIA) has underscored the importance of understanding silica nuances, particularly within engineered stone. Their publication,“What You Need to Know About Engineered Stone” delves into the potential health hazards of silica exposure and emphasises safety management in such environments.

Acknowledging the imminent change, the Housing Industry Association (HIA) strongly advises stakeholders to reconsider their choices and explore alternative products in contracts signed after December 13, 2023, especially for projects potentially affected by the ban’s enforcement.
