MSS’s Universal Safety Scale (Universal “Gotcha Stick”) is used to test the allowable guard opening size to ensure personnel cannot reach the hazard and that openings in barrier guards comply with OSHA and ANSI standards for machine safeguarding.  This tool is based on measurements of the human body, and is intended to be representative of the finger, hand and arm. This two-segment foldable scale includes Inches on one side and Metric units of measure on the other side.


This universal scale combines OSHA 1910.212 and ANSI B11.19 standards to provide the most restrictive requirements in a single scale.  By properly reaching this scale through the barrier guard opening, if you cannot touch the hazard with this scale, the machine guarding complies with OSHA and ANSI requirements for safe guard openings.
