1. Degree of Physical Demands (Strength) usually associated with the essential functions of this classification:

Light Work: Exerting up to 20 pounds of force occasionally, or up to 10 pounds of force frequently, or a negligible amount of force constantly to move objects. Physical demand requirements are in excess of those for Sedentary Work. Even thought the weight lifted may be only a negligible amount, a job should be rated Light Work: (1) when it requires walking or standing to a significant degree; or (2) when it requires sitting most of the time but entails pushing or pulling of arm or leg controls; or (3) when the job requires working at a production rate pace entailing the constant pushing or pulling of materials even though the weight of those materials is negligible. NOTE: The constant stress and strain of maintaining a production rate pace, especially in an industrial setting, can be and is physically demanding of a worker even though the amount of force exerted is negligible.

2. Type of Physical Demands usually associated with the essential functions of this classification:

Reaching: Extending hand(s) and arm(s) in any direction.

Frequently - Activity exists up to 1/3 to 2/3 of the time.

Handling: Seizing, holding, grasping, turning, or otherwise working with hand or hands. Fingers are involved only to the extent that they are an extension of the hand, such as to turn a switch or shift automobile gears.

Frequently - Activity exists up to 1/3 to 2/3 of the time.

Fingering: Picking, pinching, or otherwise working primarily with fingers rather than with the whole hand or arm as in handling.

Occasionally - Activity exists up to 1/3 of the time.

Talking: Expressing or exchanging ideas by means of the spoken word to impart oral information to clients or to the public and to convey detailed spoken instruction to other workers accurately, loudly, or quickly.

Frequently - Activity exists up to 1/3 to 2/3 of the time.

Hearing: Perceiving the nature of sounds by ear.

Frequently - Activity exists up to 1/3 to 2/3 of the time.

Near Acuity: Clarity of vision at 20 inches or less.

Frequently - Activity exists up to 1/3 to 2/3 of the time.

Accommodations: Adjustment of lens of eye to bring an object into sharp focus. This factor is important when doing near point work at varying distances from eye.

Occasionally - Activity exists up to 1/3 of the time.

3. Environmental Conditions usually associated with this classification:

Noise: The noise intensity level to which the worker is exposed in the job environment.

Level - Moderate

4. Machines, Tools, Equipment, and Work Aids which may be representative but not all inclusive, of those commonly associated with this type of work.

Computers, Drafting Tools, Electric Eraser, Pencils, Pens, Weight Scales, Blueprints, Charts, Handbooks, Light Table, Local Ordinances, Measuring Scales, Preliminary Plans, Slide Rule, T-Square, and Text books
