At 10:30 a.m. on September 16, 2015, Employee #1 was working from an aerial lift, on an uneven surface, spraying an application of fire proofing materials to the structural beams of a warehouse that was under construction. When an attempt was made to move the aerial lift, the equipment's position relative to the incline of the work surface caused it to run up and off of one side of the uneven elevation, and fall over. As it fell, it threw Employee#1 to the surface below, killing him.
