STRENGTH is determined by evaluating a combination of factors such as lifting, carrying, pushing, pulling, moving objects, standing, walking, sitting, and using arm or leg controls. For an occupation to be rated "Sedentary", both weight/force and position criteria must be satisfied.
Selection of Light work assumes that the worker can also perform Sedentary work. For detailed information about Strength, review Chapter 12 of the 1991 RHAJ.
