2. PHYSICAL EFFORT
a. Physical activity required to perform the job:
Sedentary work: Exerting up to 10 pounds of force occasionally and/or a negligible amount of force frequently or constantly to lift, carry, push, pull, or otherwise move objects. Sedentary work involves sitting most of the time. Jobs are sedentary if walking and standing are required only occasionally and all other sedentary criteria are met.
X Light work:
a. Exerting up to 20 pounds of force occasionally
b. Exerting up to 10 pounds frequently
c. Exerting a negligible amount of force constantly to move objects
(If the use of arm and/or leg controls requires exertion of forces greater than that for Sedentary Work and the worker sits most of the time, the job is rated for Light Work).
a. Exerting up to 50 pounds of force occasionally
b. Exerting up to 20 pounds of force frequently
c. Exerting up to 10 pounds of force constantly to move objects
a. Exerting up to 100 pounds of force occasionally
b. Exerting up to 50 pounds of force frequently
c. Exerting up to 20 pounds of force constantly to move objects
Very heavy work:
a. Exerting in excess of 100 pounds of force occasionally
b. Exerting in excess of 50 pounds of force constantly to move objects
c. Exerting in excess of 20 pounds of force constantly to move objects
b. Visual requirements necessary to perform the job:
Far vision: clarity of vision at 20 feet or more
X Near vision: clarity of vision at 20 inches or less
X Mid-range vision: clarity of vision at distances of more than 20 inches and less than 20 feet
Depth perception: the ability to judge distance and space relationships, so as to see objects where and as they actually are
Color vision: ability to identify and distinguish colors
Field of vision: ability to observe an area up or down or to the right or left while eyes are fixed on a given point
2. PHYSICAL EFFORT (cont.)
c. Physical activity necessary to perform the job and frequency (e.g., continually, frequently, or occasionally):
Climbing: Ascending or descending ladders, stairs, scaffolding, ramps, poles, and the like, using feet and legs and/or hands and arms. Body agility is emphasized. This factor is important if the amount and kind of climbing required exceeds that required for ordinary locomotion.
Balancing: Maintaining body equilibrium to prevent falling when walking, standing, or crouching on narrow, slippery, or erratically moving surfaces. This factor is important if the amount and kind of balancing exceeds that needed for ordinary locomotion and maintenance of body equilibrium.
Stooping: Bending body downward and forward by bending spine at the waist. This factor is important if it occurs to a considerable degree and requires full use of the lower extremities and back muscles.
Kneeling: Bending legs at knee to come to a rest on knee or knees.
Crouching: Bending the body downward and forward by bending legs and spine.
Crawling: Moving about on hands and knees or hands and feet.
Reaching: Extending hand(s) and arm(s) in any direction.
Standing: Particularly for sustained periods of time.
Walking: Moving about on foot to accomplish tasks, particularly for long distances.
Pushing: Using upper extremities top press against something with steady force in order to thrust forward, downward, or outward.
Pulling: Using upper extremities to extent force in order to drag, haul, or tug objects in a sustained motion.
Motion: Using feet to push pedals.
Lifting: Raising objects from a lower to a higher position or moving objects horizontally from position to position. This factor is important if it occurs to a considerable degree and requires substantial use of the upper extremities and back muscles.
X Fingering: Picking, pinching, typing, or otherwise working with fingers rather than with the whole hand or arm as in handling.
X Grasping: Applying pressure to an object with the fingers and palm.
2. PHYSICAL EFFORT (cont.)
X Talking: Expressing or exchanging ideas by means of the spoken word. Those activities in which workers must convey detailed or important spoken instructions to other workers accurately, loudly, or quickly.

X Repetitive Substantial movements (motions) of the wrists, hands,
Motion: and/or fingers.
