Help with ergonomics


#1

Anyone can point me to some tables o maximum recommended force (effort) in day to day activities? Like pulling, pushing, lifting and so on.

Google not helping me today, guess I lack the vocabulary for a proper search.

TIA

HI Ricardo,

Here’s an image I copied from Sander’s and McCormick’s book that is simple, but to the point:

Also, this chapter (Human Factors Design Standard) may be of use:
