Summary

Ten states and Puerto Rico now have weightlifting limitations for women workers. Minnesota, Ohio, and Puerto Rico restrict by statute, Alaska, Maryland, New York, and Utah by regulation, Oregon and Washington by wage order, and California and Massachusetts by a combination of these methods. The most frequent means of enforcing these is by investigation of individual complaints or by a combination of complaint, investigation, and regular safety inspection. Although many states have the power vested in their safety departments to issue orders specifying the amount of weight a woman worker may lift, only nine states and Puerto Rico have issued a general order covering all women in an industry or occupation. A list of the states, provisions, coverage, and flexibility are included in the report. This document is a revision of ED 014 588. (BC)
