POY Finalist: Surface-mounted lifeline system
Finalist in Safety in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
The ShockFusion Permanent Horizontal Lifeline (HLL) Roof System is a surface-mounted lifeline system that accommodates most industrial and commercial roof designs including standing seam, membrane, built-up, metal sheathing, concrete, and wood. In the event of a fall, the energy-absorbing, load distribution design ensures a secure connection to the roof while protecting the underlying structure.
The continuous pass-through design provides safe access to all areas of a roof for up to six workers per system. Energy-absorbing end/corner posts manage system forces without tipping while minimizing lifeline deflection, which decreases the probability of a worker falling.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
