A new airframe component weighs 62 pounds. It is approximately cubicle, about two feet long on each side, and in smooth packaging. The AMT must position it at waist level during installation.


What is the best way for an AMT to lift this item?
How do you measure the Horizontal Location variable, “H”, for the NIOSH lifting equation in this situation?
What is the difference between the two vertical variables: “V” and “D”?
Would this be an example of a “Good” coupling?
If the AMT must hold the component to one side during installation, would this be better, or worse?
