# SAMPLE CALCULATION

SAMPLE CALCULATION
The measured task variables when the worker is lifting:Load to be lifted= 20Kg H1(origin)= 40cm V1(origin)= 50cm A1(origin)=0 H2(dest.) = 43cm V2(dest.) =0 D(dist.)= 50cm C(coupl.) = Poor F (freq.) = 4 A2(dest.) =0 Duration (hrs) =1-2

Thus summarising the revisions made as mentioned: .6Kg RWL(dest.6 As the Lifting Index is not less than one .) = Load/RWL=1.5 LI(dest.) =12.but the layout of work has been revised so as to reduce the LI to maximum possible extent.2Kg LI(origin)=Load/RWL=1.REVISED RESULTS RWL=LC * HM *VM * DM * AM *FM * CM RWL(origin)=12.

CHANGES DONE IN THE TASK VARIABLES y The worker is advised to be closer to the Origin and destination points in order to increase the HM y Raising the height of the Destination Point in order to increase VM y Reducing the lifting frequency in order to increase the FM y Further the LI can also be reduced by reducing the Load to be lifted .

y The output comprises of the Multipliers along with RWL & LI. . y It is used to calculate the RWL & LI using NIOSH Lifting Equation.SOFTWARE DEVELOPED FEATURES y The software has been made in C++ Programming Language. y The input given to the software are the values of Task Variables.
