(2) Piles of pulp must not be undermined when being unpiled.
(3) Floor capacities must be clearly marked on all floors.
(4) When sprinklers are used for fire protection in the storage area, baled paper and rags must be stored in stable piles which do not extend into the area necessary for the proper function of sprinkler systems.
