Abstract

Models related to the psychophysical capacity of individuals engaged in frequent manual materials handling (MMH) activities are reviewed and evaluated. Predictive models are classified into regression models and fuzzy models. A list of these models is presented in the form of tables for easy access by designers and practitioners of occupational safety and health. Emphasis is placed on information that has become available since the publication of the NIOSH Work Practices Guide for Manual Lifting. Recommendations for future research in modeling the psychophysical capacity of individuals engaged in MMH activities are provided.
