Physical Requirements: Light work involves lifting no more than 20
pounds at a time with frequent lifting or carrying of objects
weighing up to 10 pounds. Even though the weight lifted may be very
little, a job is in this category when it requires a good deal of
walking or standing, or when it involves sitting most of the time
with some pushing and pulling of arm or leg controls. To be
considered capable of performing a full or wide range of light
work, you must have the ability to do substantially all of these
activities. If someone can do light work, we determine that he or
she can also do sedentary work, unless there are additional
limiting factors such as loss of fine dexterity or inability to sit
for long periods of time.
