Default Dangerous Job? Work related deaths per 100,000

Here's the source they claim it came from the second link

Here's a look at the rate of work-related, on-the-job deaths in 2011 for U.S. workers. We included the three deadliest occupations, along with a handful of other jobs. (Here's the complete list, which comes from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.)

Underwater Welders or Demo? feel like those would be pretty high up there.

By natural causes, sailor is the worst...
they die young, they live a life of wreckness, booze, drugs, gambling, always stressed from being broke...

Most they don´t even reach 40 yers old, they have massive heart atack, or they get cancer from chemicals on their cocaine!!!

I wrote life insurance for a living!!!

That´s the diagram for personal injury.

I'm thinking bush pilots, logging operations, puddle jumpers, banner towers, etc.

Low hours, high risk.

That chart is for "US workers", sailors are from other nationalities...

Cargo ship, cruise lines, people work 20 hours a day, your health is a wreck,
and you die young!!!

Yeah, plenty of crop dusters get caught in power lines too. Those guys really get tight and low and then pull up hard at the end of the field.

Vanessa-Well, did you at least use a condom?

Austin-No, only sailors use condoms!

Vanessa-Not in the '90s!

Austin-They should, those filthy bastards! They go from port to port!

I have a buddy that is an underwater welder, he says the average life span is 29 years or something like that. I do it on land and there ain't no way I'm doing it under warer even if the money is crazy.

I weld on gas and oil lines everyday. I prefer gas any day. Hot tie-ins can be a major pucker factor at times. I'd have to say those in the oil fields and refinerys have balls of brass. I stopped that kinda work because of the fact I'd have to flip my hood up and take off running 3 times a day when 30 guys start screaming. All that explosion risk and then things like benzene all over the place. I got to many years left in this racket.
