A large block of stone was being cut in half on a saw when half of the cut block toppled off the slave pallet onto floor (see video below). Fortunately, no personnel were nearby or involved. However, this incident had a high potential for a far more serious outcome.
The investigation revealed that the slave pallet used only had steel posts on the opposite side. Whilst it is not normally a problem if cutting large block in half, in this incident, it was shown to be insufficient.
