10 Most Dangerous Jobs In America

Recommended Posts

According to the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics, the list below, in order from most dangerous for the year 2005, shows the on the job accidental fatality rate. The US military is not included. I did a search of the BLS site to see what the statistics were for sign installers/servicemen. (I know of 2 in Cincinnati in the last 2 years.) The only sign related category I could find was sign manufacturers (3 accidental deaths in 2005). I'm surprised by this, because the list is very detailed, even distinguishing between corn farmers and soybean farmers, new car dealers and used car dealers,etc. I was also surprised by what they're calling garbagemen nowadays. Sanitation engineers wasn't good enough?

1. Fishermen and related fishing workers

2. Logging workers

3. Aircraft pilots and flight engineers

4. Structural iron and steel workers

5. Refuse and recyclable material collectors

6. Farmers and ranchers

7. Electrical power-line installers and repairers

8. Truck drivers

9. Miscellaneous agricultural workers

10. Construction laborers

I thought flying was supposed to be the safest way to travel? How come aircraft pilots are more likely to die than truck drivers? The way some of those truck drivers drive I would certainly think the opposite :blink:

If your learning to drive a truck you can always pull over if you screw up or scared. There's only one way if you mess up flying.

Law enforcement didn't make the top 10????


GOOD things happen for a reason......

The gawdang guvment has so many tables, etc. that I can no longer find the one I used last night to painstakingly compile this information. But I had the same question last night, and was surprised how low the rate for law enforcement was. It's just that they get so much more press (rightfully so, I guess) when they get killed than the average schmuck on the street. Plus I don't know if they consider cop-killing an accident. That's usually what the perp is trying to do.

Aircraft pilots and flight engineers must include the guys who test fly the planes... my dad worked for McDonnell Douglas for years, told me some stories from his inspection days....

    • 1st of all while its great to use as an excuse. I am not sure as what I would like to consider myself a legitimate business that excuse to not pay does not fly. I cant use that excuse with Grimco, Glantz aluminum suppliers , Ford , the bank.   Hmmm I will just have to put on my big boy pants and get into the line of credit.  Our large signs we are using our money for 60-90 days by the time the project starts through delivery then getting paid.    Besides what if they never get paid. Nope sorry thats not how this works.
    • Paul;   Your statement   " When I asked why would anyone want to work with your company knowing that you do not pay until you are paid ? I also asked how do we know if you are paid or not paid from your customer ? "   You are exactly on point. How the hell do I know for sure when you have been paid? This comes after being so stupid that I would agree to be paid when paid in the first place.   I just received a query from "FacilitySource" to become a contractor. They have just been consumed by CBRE (Coldwell Banker Richard Ellis), a large player in the real estate/ real estate management area. I received a solicitation sheet from them and I won't even insult the intelligence of those on this venue by posting it.   The response section was very definite but the payment portion was somewhere out in the Cosmos. You could  be  paid only if they got paid and then pay you at some mysterious date in the future. They had a list of discounts that they wanted to take under circumstances that were totally unverifiable. You also had to sign away all rights as a contractor while shielding them from everything. Incredible............   But if I were to sign this nonsense, I would be getting exactly what I deserve.   Just for the record, they intimated that they wanted me to provide service to Lowe's, along with some other familiar major accounts in my area.   I politely refused the offer but thought to myself that if a person made me an offer like this to my face I would have dispensed justice with a broken car antenna right on the spot.   Peace out!  
    • Here is a " National " Maintenance Co that sent me a request to work for them. I read their contract and it included payment statements stating they will only pay their contractors if they get paid by their customers. Also included was a Hold Harmless Insurance Policy covering everyone  And no legal actions can be taken against the National or the end customer  Plus a lot of other nonsense    When I asked why would anyone want to work with your company knowing that you do not pay until you are paid ? I also asked how do we know if you are paid or not paid from your customer ? Here is the answer sent to me                  Hello,   I will take you out of our system. The only reason we wait until the client pays us ( like every other maintenance company that isn’t upfront with you about it ) is because we are nationwide and all through Canada. If we paid every technician before getting paid we would be out of business. That would be millions we would have to lay out.   Thank you!   Dominique DiPalo Vendor Relations RKB Maintenance Solutions 330 Motor Parkway, Suite 306 Hauppauge, NY 11788 P:  516-612-7821 x 413| F: 516-706-1393 E:  DDiPalo@rkb247.com | W: www.rkb247.com
