An operating engineer strapped a GoPro camera to his helmet to capture a view of Chicago atop a 500-foot crane tower.

The footage is part of an effort to document city construction sites in order to keep them safe for workers.

According to Building Department Commissioner Felecia Davis, every large crane in operation creates approximately 1,000 jobs.
