        I was just sitting here thinking about the most dangerous jobs out there. I was thinking about it because my husband works in the most dangerous prison yard in Arizona, he is a correction officer. I don't think he gets paid nearly enough, for how dangerous it is, but it pay the bills.

        Anyways it got me a thinkin'...what other dangerous jobs are out there? I looked it up and I found this list.

        The 10 most dangerous jobs
        Occupation Fatalities per 100,000 

        Timber cutters 117.8 

        Fishers 71.1 

        Pilots and navigators 69.8 

        Structural metal workers 58.2 

        Drivers-sales workers 37.9 

        Roofers 37 

        Electrical power installers 32.5 

        Farm occupations 28 

        Construction laborers 27.7 

        Truck drivers 25 

        Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics; survey of occupations with minimum 30 fatalities and 45,000 workers in 2002

        .


        What do you guys think?

        I don't have any statistics on past fatalities...but I would think jobs involving nuclear/radioactivity/biohazards are up there on the list of dangerous occupations.

        Okay, do they include military in those statistics or are the military jobs separate?

        When i watch deadliest catch, nothing in this world can change my mind on how dangerous that is in that berring sea. Also i beleive any job where you deal with dangerous unpredictable people like for say your husbands' job would be the second most dangerous.

        I think the Deadliest Catch, is truly the most dangerous job out there too. That sea is brutal. Many fisherman lose their lives out there.

        I think the military is separate Chilly. I do think that is a very dangerous job as well...All of those brave men and women risk their lives for ours everyday..That should definately be on top of the list.

        My husbands job is very scary Imagin., not too long ago a correction officer was transporting an inmate, and was stabbed in the temple 14 times. Every night when my husband leaves, I pray he will come home safe. If he is not on time coming home, I always have horrible thoughts...He loves his job though.

        Ok I found a more recent one somewhere else.. Its dated May 2010



        Number 10 on the list: Police Sheriffs and Patrol Officers
        -    Risks lye mainly with criminal and dangerous confrontations

        Number 9 on the list: Refuse and Recyclable Material Collectors
        -    Risks are from height or falls, extreme weather, fumes, and hazardous material

        Number 8 on the list: Drivers (Truck and Sales)
        -    Risks involve vehicle accidents from the amount of time spend on the road

        Number 7 on the list: Electrical Power Line Installers and Repairers
        -    Risks are from the height or risk of falling, and possible electrocution

        -    Risks are from the height or risk of a slip and fall, and heat related situations

        Number 5 on the list: Farmers or Ranchers
        -    Risks are from operating heavy machinery and the amount of lone workers

        Number 4 on the list: Iron and Steel Workers
        -    Risk is from the height or risk of falling

        Number 3 on the list: Pilots and Flight Engineers

        Number 2 on the list: Loggers
        -    Risks are from weather related issues like high winds and from falling branches and heavy equipment

        Number 1 on the list: Fishers (and likewise)

        Here in OR/WA we have a lot of loggers, and I know plenty of young newbies going out there thinking it's easy fun money, and getting hurt first day on the job.  So I completely agree with that.

        I like Dirty Jobs too, the worm one makes me laugh when I think of it lol

        Oh and that guys job in the brick factory, where the entire job is standing in front of the machines watching the dials.  WOW how boring.... but it's probably perfect for them, it would drive me crazy.
