NIOSH Lifting Equation Calculator 

    

Knowing how much weight an individual worker can safely lift is a key component to preventing back injury in the workplace. NIOSH recently released a free mobile lifting application, NLE Calc, which helps users determine safe lifting limits. The new NIOSH app takes information from the internationally renowned “Revised NIOSH Lifting Equation” out of the laboratory and into the hands of workers and employers. Learn more about the app here! Check out more back health resources from AgrAbility such as the Back on the Farm, Back in the Saddle guide!
