3. Logger

The task of working all day cutting down large trees sounds dangerous enough without adding fast-moving machinery into the mix. Lumberjacks have one of the most life-threatening careers with the highest rate of workplace fatalities; according to priceonomics “91 in 100,000 loggers are killed on the job every year - nearly 30 times greater than the average job.”The majority of logging-related deaths comes from equipment errors or trees falling on workers.

4. Microchip Manufacturer

This isn’t an occupation that would seem dangerous, but computer chips are created with numerous hazardous chemicals including arsenic.

6. Bull Rider

Bull riding has surged in popularity since the 1990s with promises of big money for a second ride, but bull riders can suffer at least one significant injury per every 15 events they partake in, including concussions, broken bones and fractures. This life-threatening situation is probably not worth the potential prize money.

9. Snake Milker

Snake milking is one of the deadliest yet essential jobs that save many lives every year. While there are safety procedures in place, each milking process has a high-risk factor when fighting with such a fast and poisonous reptile. Most workers are bitten on the job. On the upside, snake milkers risk their lives to save thousands of others.

10. Lorry Driver

Lorry and courier driving is dangerous for a number of reasons; it’s a tiring job that requires a lot of concentration and the vehicles often weigh up to 44 tons. Couriers are also at risk of being physically harmed and robbed for the goods that they are transporting. According to the Telegraph , “a heavy goods vehicle has the potential to cause a lot of damage if a driver loses control – but a number of lorry driver deaths were caused by other moving vehicles on the road.”

Man, thank you for the top most dangerous professions, it was very interesting. In my opinion, the most dangerous profession is underwater metal welding. My father worked in this area and every day he faced a huge risk. At first he was a simple welding engineer, but in the end we started to run out of money and then he was offered to try to work underwater. He began to study the essence of the work and all the risks in more detail and decided to read about it on the network and came across a site on which everything was described in detail. When he saw underwater welding salary, he immediately agreed. In a year, the amount was about 280,000 bucks and it's just a huge amount of money the same as risk. The key dangers underwater are explosions of technology and pressure. Accidents happened to him many times and it was really terrible, but he had 9 lives. Once a poorly welded part fell on his head and he lost consciousness and began to sink to a very great height. It could be his last minutes, but his colleagues helped him and pulled him out of the water. So this profession is a regular risk, but it is really awesome paid!
