Lifting PPE Walkways Workstations

Workstation Layout: Relevant Anthropometric Measures

The 21 anthropometric measurements listed below are all that are needed to lay out the vast majority of workstations. The data are for the 5th-percentile female and the 95th-percentile male. The subjects are lightly clothed with no hard hat or hand tools hanging from the belt. Therefore, these values represent the minimum dimensions for each size category.
