Abstract This guide proposes a general approach for the selection and installation of open ventilated cabins for stone dressing work. Ventilated cabins should ensure proper containment so as to protect the other workers present in the workshop, to offer protection to the operator and to remove pollutants. However, current cabin designs do not always fulfil these requirements. Contents: understanding the hazards; specifying the needs; existing solutions; selection of the most suitable solution; guidance on installation and initial operation.
