Top 10 Deadliest Jobs in America

The 10 Deadliest Jobs in AmericaLets have a look at the top 10 most deadliest jobs in America. When we say deadly we mean deadly. These are the jobs with the highest fatality rate in the country.

 

So before choosing your career if it is going to be one of these, your chances being killed at work will increase exponentially.

 

According to new data from the Labor Department, people who worked in the fishing industry had the highest rate of on-the-job deaths in 2011, at 121.2 per 100,000. Logging workers were just behind, at 102.4 deaths per 100,000. Truck drivers come in at No. 8, with a much lower death rate of 24.0 per 100,000. However, largely because of the large number of these workers, the number of fatal injuries was by far higher than in the other groups on the list, at 759. The only group in the top 10 that comes close is farmers and ranchers, at 260 deaths last year.
