Most Dangerous Job In The World

For most of us, the closest we will come to danger at work is spilling a cup of hot coffee over our lap or being caught reading Harian metro by our boss when we should be working. But there are a sizeable minority of workers for whom taking risks is the biggest part of their job.

I would have to say 


1. Alaskan Crab Fisherman.
Ever wonder why crab is so expensive? Yes, the fact that the meat is rare is one factor, but another important and lesser-known fact is that the men and women who risk their lives fishing the crab in ice-cold waters face the highest on-the-job mortality rate.


2. Logger
Logging is dangerous year-round, but seasonal danger peaks in late summer and fall as most deaths occur in July, September and October. Many would rank this profession higher, as logging has been a perennial choice in top danger lists.


3. Truck Driver
Truck drivers are special individuals who live on the road and travel non-stop in their mission to deliver goods worldwide. They have always faced tough road conditions, reckless drivers and sleepless nights, which can all lead to tragic circumstances


4. Miner
Society has shifted from industrial to more service-oriented, so "miner" is less mentioned in such lists. But this does not change anything, as this is one profession that leaves health concerns down the road and takes lives when accidents happen.


5. Firefighter
Whether you're fighting a fire in the forest, killing the flames in a residential area or running into a burning house to save children and animals; they're peaceful and help everyone despite all odds.


6. Police
Often chastised, vilified, criticized... sometimes justifiably, sometimes unfairly. Regardless, most times, a policeman is a sign of peace, calm and reassurance. These men and women have some of the most stress-packed jobs in the world.


7. Armored Car Guard


8. Bomb Squad
How many professions do you know that come close to this one in terms of facing risk and danger head-on? wonder what the failure rate is for bomb squad school...


9. Coast Guard, Search & Rescue
Few men and women put their lives on the line day in and day out like the Coast Guard. Even less do so for such unselfish purposes, as these workers help others who are in desperate need of assistance, making it all the more noble and virtuous.


10. Bodyguard
When you are paid t
o serve as a human shield for a president, rock star or businessman, you'll always have the risk of getting shot or stabbed while unselfishly protecting who you're protecting. So, bodyguard makes the list.
