Abstract
Central to the development of occupational physical selection standards for trades in the Canadian Forces is the study of the relationship between man's physical attributes and his physical performance capabilities. A battery of tests, pertaining to the physical attributes of strength, anthropometry and endurance, has been compiled. The tests, selected from the literature, were those with a demonstrated relationship with work performance. The performance of male and female subjects on these physical tests and on job-related tasks, representative of the physical demands of the trades, will be compared. Those candidate tests which exhibit a practical predictive relationship with the tasks will be selected for the development of physical selection standards for trades in the Canadian Forces.
