Outide operations will begin no earlierthan 15 min after sunrise and conclude no later than 15
min before sunset. Because most activities will be conducted during daylight hours, field
illumination measurements wi ir not normally be required. However, activities require outside work
to be done at night, a minimum of5 ft-c will be required.
Potential hazards retated to the interaction of personnel with their working environment may be
present at the site. 'Tie primary ergonomic hazards that may exist are lifting heavy loads, and
physical obstacles associated with traversing rough ground. Personnel should always position
themselves properly and lift from the legs when attempting to lift equipment. Each employee should
rely on his/her buddy to assist in lifting loads that are too heavy for one person to properly lift and
carry. Back strain, the most common ergonomic hazard in the field, can be easily avoided, provided
the om-site workers always ask for assistance when they need it.
