The Iso-Lok doc combo board combines the features of a lockable document holder with those of a safety lockout station and group lockout box. Securely keeping both the permit-to-work documents and lockout equipment in the same unit, all aspects of lockout safety can now be controlled and monitored from one central location. Up to five permit-to-work documents can be stored in the box, and ten more in a compartment behind the unit. The strong, lightweight aluminum box backboard is designed to securely hold keys, padlocks and multi-clasps (up to 15 total).

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.
