NISOH Lift Index

A calculator for Safety Professionals to

determine the NIOSH Lift Index for one single,

two handed, repetitive lifting task.

This App is a tool for Qualified Professionals in the safety industry.  It condenses 43 pages of descriptions and equations from the NIOSH Lift Index manual into an easy to use App.

Every lifting task involves moving an object from one place(Start) to another(Finish). This equation analyzes both positions and computes the Lift Index for the most stressful position.
