At 8:45 p.m. on April 7, 2021, an employee and a coworker were hanging steel I-b eams via a universal lifting fixture (ULF) attached to a forklift in preparation for galvanization. After they finished hanging the materials, the forklift they were using was resting on its tines and caused the ULF to sway and fall off its stand. The ULF struck the employee causing multiple fractures and killing him.
