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
