(5) when using goods fork to pick up goods, fork should be as deep as possible under the load, and note that the goods fork can not touch other goods or objects. The minimum door post reversion should be adopted to stabilize the load so as to prevent the load from sliding backward. When loading and unloading, the door frame can be small forward, so that the load can be placed and the fork can be drawn.
