Exerted Details

Form OWCP 5C is a new form that was released in February of 2018. This form is used to report an injury or illness to the Department of Labor's Office of Workers' Compensation Programs (OWCP). The form must be completed by the employee, their doctor, and their employer. By completing this form, you are ensuring that your claim is filed properly and that you will receive the benefits you are entitled to. In this blog post, we will go over what information is required on Form OWCP 5C, and how to complete it correctly.

This basic report will help you ascertain just how long it will require you to fill out form owcp 5c, the number of pages it has, and a handful of other unique specifics of the PDF.

Physical Demand Definitions for the OWCP

OWCP has adopted the following Strength Level definitions to indicate the absence or presence and frequency of the physical demand components requested on the OWCP-5b and OWCP-5c.

1. STRENGTH LEVEL

Sedentary Work

Sedentary Work involves exerting up to 10 pounds of force occasionally or a negligible amount of force frequently to lift, carry, push, pull, or otherwise move objects, including the human body. Sedentary work involves sitting most of the time, but may involve walking or standing for brief periods of time. Jobs may be defined as Sedentary when walking and standing are required only occasionally and all other Sedentary criteria are met.

Light Work

Light Work involves exerting up to 20 pounds of force occasionally or up to 10 pounds of force frequently, or a negligible amount of force constantly to move objects. Physical demand requirements are in excess of those for Sedentary Work. Even though the weight lifted may be only a negligible amount, a job/occupation is rated Light Work when it requires: (1) walking or standing to a significant degree; (2) sitting most of the time while pushing or pulling arm or leg controls; or (3) working at a production rate pace while constantly pushing or pulling materials even though the weight of the materials is negligible. (The constant stress and strain of maintaining a production rate pace, especially in an industrial setting, can be and is physically demanding of a worker even though the amount of force exerted is negligible.)

Medium Work

Medium Work involves exerting 20 to 50 pounds of force occasionally or 10 to 25 pounds of force frequently or an amount greater than negligible and up to 10 pounds constantly to move objects. Physical demand requirements are in excess of these for Light Work.

Heavy Work

Heavy Work involves exerting 50 to 100 pounds of force occasionally, or 25 to 50 pounds of force frequently, or 10 to 20 pounds of force constantly to move objects. Physical demand requirements are in excess of those for Medium Work.

Very Heavy Work

Very Heavy work involves exerting in excess of 100 pounds of force occasionally, or in excess of 50 pounds of force frequently or in excess of 20 pounds of force constantly to move objects, Physical demand requirements are in excess of those for Heavy Work.

2. REACHING

Forward flexion and/or abduction of the hand(s) and arm(s); generally, within a 0- 90range of motion from the shoulder; or extension within a 0- 50 range of motion from the shoulder.

3. REACHING ABOVE THE SHOULDER

Forward flexion and/or abduction of the hand(s) and arm(s); generally at greater than 90from the shoulder.

4. TWISTING

Turning, twisting, contorting, or flexing the torso in any direction towards the right or left.

5. BENDING/STOOPING

Bending body downward and forward by bending spine at the waist requiring full use of the lower extremities and back muscles.

6. OPERATING A MOTOR VEHICLE AT WORK

Driving any vehicle during the performance of one's duties.

7. REPETITIVE MOVEMENTS OF ELBOWS (HANDLING)

Seizing, holding, grasping, turning, or otherwise working with hand or hands using the whole arm.

8. REPETITIVE MOVEMENTS OF WRISTS (FINGERING)

Picking, pinching, or otherwise working primarily with fingers and wrists rather than the whole arm as in handling.

9. SQUATTING (CROUCHING)

Bending body downward and forward by bending legs and spine.

10. KNEELING

Bending legs at knees to come to rest on knee or knees.

11. CLIMBING
