In Section III of the Schedule for Rating Permanent Disabilities, pg. 3-1, "Occupations & Group Numbers" you will find an alphabetical listing of occupations and their related three-digit group numbers with a corresponding industrial designation to distinguish it from other occupations having the same title but whose functions and activities differ. The Schedule divides the labor market into 45 numbered occupational groups. Each group is assigned a three-digit code called an occupational group number. The first digit of the code refers to the arduousness of the duties, ranking jobs from 1 to 5 in ascending order of physical arduousness. The second digit separates occupations into broad categories sharing common characteristics. The third digit differentiates between occupations within these groups." 05PDRS, page 1-8.
