Worked to Death:  27 Most Dangerous Jobs in The World

To recognize those who make the ultimate sacrifice, here’s the 27 world’s most dangerous professions.

Loggers and Lumberjacks

Often the people who work in the logging industry have extended shifts out among the trees, making for long hours and exhaustion.

Deep Sea Fishers

Fighting against the storms of the sea with naught but a fishing trawler is a hazardous profession that takes away the brave souls who provide our crab leg buffets.

2

Flight Engineers and Small Aircraft Pilots

We think of pilots as being the captains who fly commercial airliners, but most of them are bush pilots in small planes that hop from dangerous airports on a daily basis. 

3

Miners

More safety requirements and regulations have cut down the dangers that miners face, but it’s still a job where you’re digging deep beneath the surface where suffocation, deadly gas explosions, mechanical malfunctions, and cave-ins are just a few of the risks.

4

Roofers

Falling hazards are a given when working atop buildings, but the rigors of the job also mean that heat stroke claims more than a few people every year.

5

Taxi Drivers, Chauffeurs, and Personal Transport Operators

Naturally the people who spend their time working in cars are therefore more likely to be fatally wounded in the line of duty.

6

Sanitation and Recycling Workers

Harmful chemicals, dangerous landfills, and machinery often cause their demise, as does the fact that they too are out on the roads day after day.

Landmine Removal Specialists

Only those in specialized fields tend to really be at risk, and that includes the people looking to make the world safer by taking land mines out of the equation.
