Frequently Asked Questions
In O*NET OnLine, where can I find the strength ratings as found in the DOT?
The information in the O*NET Database does not include the "sedentary", "light", "medium", "heavy", and "very heavy" strength ratings used in the DOT. However, there are numerous variables relating to physical requirements, including Gross Body Coordination, Dynamic Strength, and Static Strength. Much of this information is provided in the "Abilities" section of the O*NET OnLine occupational reports, with the most detailed information available by choosing the "Details" or "Custom" report option. O*NET information is intended for use in career exploration, and should not be interpreted as requirements for any specific employer-employee situation.
