Lifting calculator app
Oregon OSHA’s easy lift app uses a modified version of the NIOSH lifting equation to give the user a maximum safe weight for various lifting scenarios.
How to use the app:
- Indicate where your lift begins.
- Estimate the number of lifts per minute and the hours of lifting per day.
- The app calculates the maximum safe lifting weight, with an additional limit for more than 45 degrees of twisting during lifting.
How to get the app:
a) Use the Desktop version
b) Download the Android v2.1 app (Sept. 12, 2013)
