Host: ASSP Northern Ohio Chapter

Topic – “Machine Safeguarding: Making Sense of Control Reliability”

Presenter: Mark Stewart, President – Arrow Industrial Solutions, LLC, Windham OH

“Having been a lifelong resident in Northeastern Ohio, Mark obtained his BS Degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Akron and MBA in Technology from Kent State University.  Mark has worked 30 years as a senior operational executive in various manufacturing industries with direct responsibility for EHS – developing comprehensive safety programs, consistently improving safety cultures and metrics.  With specific expertise in risk assessments, training of safety topics and machine guarding standards, Mark (now owner of Arrow Industrial solutions, LLC), focuses his attention on safety solutions.

Arrow Industrial Solutions, LLC designs both mechanical guarding and control reliable solutions for manufacturing equipment meeting OHSA, ISO and ANSI standards.  Machine guarding is required to keep employees safe from moving parts, nip points and projectiles, but is often viewed by operators as inhibiting productivity.  By utilizing a collaborative design process and integration techniques, safe and efficient access to critical machine areas to clear jams and service the machine is possible – while still meeting the machine guarding and control reliability standards.  We would like to share the elements of this process and guarding options available to you.”
