Oregon OSHA’s easy lift app was developed from a review of research on safe lifting to give the user a maximum safe weight for various lifting scenarios.
Step 1: Indicate where your lift begins.
Step 2: Estimate the number of lifts per minute and the hours of lifting per day.
Step 3: The app calculates the maximum safe lifting weight.
Version 2 includes the following updates:
• Addition of a 5th (red) no lift zone
• A more natural lifting technique for the animated figure
• Reduced widths of the horizontal lifting zones
• Lower the calculated values in the lifting tables
