Do you feel safe at work? According to the 2014 Bureau of Labor Statistics' Census of Fatal Occupation Injuries report, the deadliest civilian job in the United States is logging. Not only is logging extremely dangerous work, workers are located in rural areas where there is limited access to medical facilities. There were 111 deaths for every 100,000 loggers in 2014. The census identifies the next deadliest jobs in this order: fishing workers; aircraft pilot and flight engineer; roofers; recyclable material collectors; farmers and ranchers; and iron and steel workers. Policer officers ranked fifteenth on the list, and cab drivers ranked tenth, just after electrical installers and repairers. We've collected some awesome videos on this topic.
