Have you tried this safety app?

When I began studying for safety certifications, this was the equation they warned me about. The NIOSH Lifting Equation.

For those unaware of the equation (and I’m a bit jealous of you), it goes like this:

LC (51) x HM x VM x DM x AM x FM x CM = RWL

Thanks to NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health), now there’s both an Apple and Android app for it.

If the links don’t appear, you can find the app by searching for “NLE Calc” on your applicable app site.

Confused by the variables and want a step-by-step description? Here’s a link to Ergo-Plus and they do a thorough job on simplifying the topic.
