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.

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.
