In order to determine this, and to establish what actions are justifiably required, it is necessary to examine the hazards and the risks involved. A study was therefore commissioned to assess the risks of standing in seated areas at a major football stadium. g. HSC, 2000).

55 kg at an angle of 50°. 28 kg being generated at the greatest angle of 129°. These results indicate that when workers are required to exert forces greater than approximately 10 kg they have to lean forwards or backwards to use their body mass to aid in force generation. The concomitant effect is that the CM is moved towards the edges of the SB, and once an angle greater than approximately 73° for pushing and 107° for pulling has been reached the CM is most likely falling outside of the base of support (assuming a base of support of 300 mm and mean stature of 1800 mm).
