    Most dangerous careers: Alligator wrestler


    Very little explanation is needed as to why alligator wrestling often falls high in the ranks of most dangerous careers. While accidents at work typically involve slips, trips and falls or issues such as occupational deafness, alligator wrestling shakes up the charts with some stark examples of what work-place injury can really entail.

    Occupational dangers: Alligator wrestling accidents

    For those who aren’t in the know, alligator wrestling is a demonstration of alligator capturing techniques, which has been developed into a sport in America. While the activity was mostly popular in the USA, where it originated from alligator hunting in the wild, the sport has now escalated into a worldwide phenomenon.

    While entertaining for members of the audience, alligator wrestlers are in danger of serious work-related injury, and even fatalities. Wild animals are unpredictable and no matter how experienced you are in your field, there is always a risk of bites, loss of limbs, infection and even fatalities.

    The lowdown on work-related injuries

    Everyone experiences accidents from time to time, whether in our free time or while we are at work. Human error and lapse in concentration does lead to us making mistakes.

    That being said, while you are working, your employer must – by law – ensure your health and safety. Therefore, if you sustain an injury at work that you believe was down to employer negligence or poor management, for example, your employer could be liable for any harm you have suffered.
