“Gotcha Stick” from STI Features New Dimensions for Human Arm

STI-Gotcha-Fold

“Gotcha Stick” – Scientific Technologies, Inc. (STI), introduces the new “Gotcha Stick” Safe Distance Scale. This three-segment safe distance stick accurately tests the allowable barrier opening size based on the distance from the point of operation. It features English measurements on one side, and Metric measurements on the other.

 

Although not officially adopted by OSHA, the “Gotcha Stick” is based on data from “A Review of Machine-Guarding Recommendations,” by Donald R. Vaillancourt and Stover H. Snook of the Liberty Mutual Research Center for Health & Safety. This data redefines the dimensions of the human arm for the purposes of machine guarding. The resulting new stick has been modified to include openings of less than 1/4 inch over the first 1/2 inch distance.
