Abstract A study on maximum acceptable weight limit (MAWL) was conducted on ten adult Indian female building construction workers (CW) and eight household workers (HW), following the psychophysical methodology. All these workers were in the age group of 28–32 years. In this study, three different body heights (i.e. knee, waist and maximum reach) in sagittal plane were considered. The lifting frequency was fixed at 1 lift min −1 . The subjects were instructed to lift the load from the ground… CONTINUE READING
