Risk managers are constantly faced with the challenge of making decisions at various levels of their organizations. One of the challenges, which often times is unavoidable, lies in assigning a monetary value to human risks. Such challenge necessitates engineering managers to make educated decisions on the level of risk that the organizations and businesses should accept when it comes to human. The purpose of this study is to suggest a suitable framework that captures this aspect of engineering Risk Management in order to make rational and sustainable decisions about such assessed risk. This will be accomplished by exploring the tools, techniques, and methods implemented to evaluate the human risk in the decision making process by risk managers. The study attempts to address a fundamental question that risk managers strive to seek a clear and definite answer to the question "are the benefits gained from assigning a monetary value to human life worth taking the risks, efforts, costs required to achieve such benefits?.
