The Remarks section provides free-standing comments as well as statements for Physical Activities and Environmental Conditions ratings that appear with an asterisk (*). Free-standing comments, which precede statements about ratings, usually provide information related to specializations for an occupation.
An asterisk for a Physical Activity rating will appear after that rating. There are no asterisks under Physical Activities in the sample group – 2212.1 Geological and Mineral Technologists. However, if an asterisk appeared beside Strength 2 Light, it would affect the meaning of the rating. Strength 2 Light – indicates that Strength for the occupational group as a whole is 2, which has the label Light. The presence of an asterisk would indicate that some jobs within the group have a rating of 3, which is labelled Medium. In general, an asterisk for Physical Activities indicates a level up for the rating.
For Environmental Conditions, an asterisk indicates that the potential condition in a group is limited to some jobs, not the occupation as a whole. For example, in 2212.1 Geological and Mineral Technologists, the asterisk for Hazards H8* Dangerous locations – indicates that this is a potential hazard for some but not all jobs within the group.
