Is there a safe load reference for manual handling of lifting and lowering loads?

You can refer to the Singapore Standard SS569: 2011 (Code of practice for manual handling).

The Code of practice serves as a reference standard for acceptable practices for manual handling in Singapore. It also provides recommended lifting limits, which depend on load and task variables.
