It would take some major cajones to be a steelworker on a project like that.

I can't image even being harnessed 1 kilometer up in the air.

Are all of them? I was watching something on the construction of the new World Trade center and I remember them interviewing a Native American steelworker that talked about how they went up without a harness. Maybe I imagined it.

Seems like harnesses and safety equipment would be mandatory due to today's OSHA standards and also liability purposes.

With only 90% left of uninhabited desert surrounding them, it's time to start building upwards. True true. Not a target at all

Gonna take 5 years to complete. By then, some other country will be in the process of building the world's tallest building. What about the Shanghai Tower?

They are.

OSHA books are some fun reading.

My favorite was reading when to shore a trench and when not to.
