NIOSH Lifting Equation. 1981 Equation. In 1981 the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health(NIOSH) issued a Work Practices Guide for Manual Lifting that used 770 lbs. of L5S1 compressive force as one of the criteria for establishing an Action Limit (AL). Exceeding the action limit required types of manual materials handling lifting to move a load from a lower place to a higher place Biomechanics of Load Lifting F abd P abd A diagram where average A diagram 465 cm 2; Steps in a biomechanical analysis of lifting Choose a frame of reference; Evaluate gravitational forces during lifting Basic biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system (2nd ed.

The variations were defined by: (i) boxsize (three different boxes were used), (ii) presence or absence of handles, and (iii) symmetry and asymmetry of the lifting task
