Abstract
DCIEM is currently undertaking a study to establish occupational physical selection standards (OPSS) for each trade in the Canadian Forces (CF). Work is underway to identify and quantify specific tasks that impose high physical demands on trade personnel. Future work will involve the development of a battery of physical tests from which the most reliable, sensitive, and predictive measures of task performance will be selected for screening purposes. The report presents a discussion of some of the major factors affecting strength, endurance, and work performance, as well as a review of occupational screening procedures and methods.
