Whilst on a mine site, a problem arose.  The Mines Department stopped the filling of holes containing explosive charges, by the buckets of the front end loaders - a common practice within the mining world.  They were concerned that the buckets scrapping over rocks would result in an ignition source thereby causing a premature explosion.
Enter:- Occ Safe Consultancy - invented the "Stemming Tool" fitted to the front end loader, placing the spoils in a scissor motion into the dynamite loaded hole.  It is now part of the CAT tool range, to fit onto front end tool carriers.
