The employee and the manager were inside of the trailer to s tabilize the Pack 301, packaging machine while the forklift operator used the ti p of one of the forklifts tines to lift part of the packing machine over the lip of a dock plate to pull it out of the semi-trailer. The packing machine was abo ut two-thirds of the way out of the trailer when the back feet got caught on the dock plate. The operator set the machine down on the dock plate and repositione d the forklift beneath the packaging machine to try to lift it a second time.
