We Are The Rock for Injured And Disabled Workers

Do you work one of the 12 most dangerous jobs in the country?

| Feb 10, 2020 | Firm News

Most jobs have some element of risk to them. After all, work can be difficult, which is why someone gets paid to do it. However, the safety risks at some jobs are significantly higher than other jobs.

Although sometimes that great risk comes with great reward, there are still certain safety standards that must be met. Employers have a responsibility to keep their employees safe on the job. Unfortunately, sometimes employees get injured anyway.

A dozen dangerous jobs

The Bureau of Labor Statistics documents how many people die at work each year. According to this data, several professions have a higher rate of fatal injuries than the national average.

Few Arizonians are likely to work logging or fishing jobs, which represent the two most dangerous occupations in the country. However, area residents may work some of the other high-risk professions.

Some of the most dangerous jobs in American, include:

  • Aircraft pilots and flight engineers
  • Roofers
  • Refuse and recyclable materials collectors
  • Driver/sales workers and truck drivers
  • Farmers, ranchers and other agricultural managers
  • Structural iron and steel workers
  • First-line supervisors of construction trades and extraction workers
  • First-line supervisors of landscaping, lawn service and groundskeeping workers
  • Electrical power-line installers and repairers
  • Grounds maintenance workers

Seeing your job on this list does not necessarily mean that it is a bad job or that you should find other employment. However, it does mean there are associated risks. It is important to understand proper safety protocols and carefully follow them because unsafe practices could have serious consequences.

It is also important to understand that if you receive an injury at work, you may have options. Workers’ compensation benefits are intended to protect injured workers from some of the financial burdens that can develop as a result of a workplace injury.
