NIOSH lifting equation helps determine if an object or weight is unsafe to lift over a standard eight hour work day.  There are 10 steps you can take to determine if your lift is safe.

Materials you will need:

-Tape Measure
-Writing Utensil

Estimated time to complete : 15 minutes


RWL = Recommended Weight Limit
LI = Lifting Index
HM = Horizontal Multiplier
VM = Vertical Multiplier
DM = Distance Multiplier
AM = Asymmetry Multiplier
CM = Coupling Multiplier
FM = Frequency Multiplier

Step 1: NIOSH Requirements

Watch the video to determine if the NIOSH lifting equation is applicable in your situation.


Hi is it possible to make ready to use table like "BMI Chart"? Thanks
