Build Magazine 24 “My grandfather worked on the assembly lines of General Motors and his life matters. People, families and communal moral values matter. Our Human Cost of Construction timeline will help the construction industry remain human. It gives the industry and the workers in the industry the tools to track, evaluate and calculate a major construction effort’s cost of human life and safety rating. A global “Human Life and Safety Rating” of major construction projects will help us, as a global community, pause and ask whether this project was worth the lives and injuries of these workers’. Our timeline helps put the global “Human Life and Safety Rating” of construction projects in context of the cost of human life and the value we gained from their sacrifice. It also give us a forum to honor the accomplishments of the workers whom have given their life for the greater good of their community.” - John Michael Montevideo
