Two separate pieces of work combine to make this monument. The first is called 100 Workers and it consists of two long, low walls made out of polished red granite. On the top of the walls are 100 individual bronze plaques with the name of a worker, who died in a workplace accident, engraved on it. There is one worker named for each year from 1901 until 1999. The plaque for the year 2000 has been left blank. 100 Workers is by John Scott & Stewart H. Pollock

The second part of this monument is called The Anonymity of Prevention. This is a bronze sculpture of a man, dressed in work clothes and wearing full safey gear, kneeling on one knee and appearing to chisel into the wall of 100 Workers. This sculpture was done by Derek Lo and Lana Winkler.
