Commonly used throughout the world, manual lifting tasksawhether simple or complexaall involve variable loads, postures, and movements. This practical guide discusses how to analyze the intricate lifting function and prevent injury during its execution. Outlining revised NIOSH Lifting Equation (RNLE) methods, the book illustrates their use in assessing manual lifting tasks of varying degrees of difficulty. Using examples to reinforce presented concepts, it explains how RNLE methods can be applied to evaluate single, composite, variable, and sequential lifting tasks. It also explores how to interpret and apply the results according to international standards and guidelines.In the present exercise, the relevant value of STLI (in both computational models) , derived from handling heavy loads in bad geometries (fifth weight category), greatly influences, in a similar way, the final VLI. 8.4 AN EXAMPLE OF VARIABLE anbsp;...
