While accidents at work occur in every job whether you are an office worker or a lion tamer, beyond the realms of common occupational ailments, some job roles are considered among the most dangerous careers in the world and can cause serious work-related accidents. But what are these most dangerous careers?
Top 5 most dangerous careers in the world
It’s not the teachers, call centre advisors and retail managers among us that have the most dangerous of jobs. To find the most dangerous careers we have to look outside the standard employment box and consider those who are consistently at high risk of experiencing a work-related accident, or sustaining occupational injury and illness.
Here are our top five most dangerous careers:
- Deep-sea fishermen
- Waste collectors
From constant use of saws and falling trees, to breathing in dust, diving into deep water in adverse weather conditions and exposure to hazardous materials, when you work in these professions you are at a continual high risk of sustaining a work-related illness or injury.
Have you been involved in an accident at work?
So you may not be felling trees or working day in day out with hazardous waste, but we can all experience accidents at work that cause us physical harm and distress.
If you have been injured at work and feel you are not to blame for the harm you have suffered, Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you recover the compensation you are entitled to.
So long as the occupational accident occurred within the last three years and you have proof to suggest liability, at Accident Advice Helpline we will be able to assess the details of your case and determine whether or not your case is likely to be successful if pursued.
