The state Department of Labor and Industries has fined Goodwill $9,000 for workplace safety violations in a forklift accident that killed a man in August in Lynnwood.
The department says Goodwill should have done a better job training the forklift operator.
The Daily Herald reports the state agency released it findings Wednesday.
The operator’s view was obstructed. He didn’t see a man in front of the forklift until too late.
When the forklift stopped suddenly in the parking lot, a load of merchandise fell off and killed 69-year-old Chuck K. Lee of Bothell.
