At 2:15 p.m. on August 26, 2022, an employee was picking up broken pieces of por celain inside a 53 foot trailer at a stone product manufacturing facility. Sever al A-frame stands with porcelain slabs were damaged in transit, and the employee was using a hammer, shovel, broom and forklift with a trash bin while cleaning up the damaged slabs.

When a coworker driving the forklift was backing out of the trailer wit h the trash bin, the slabs fell off the A-frame stand.
