6 Shockingly Dangerous Jobs

AAA

Think "dangerous jobs" and you are likely to come up with fishermen and loggers for starters. These occupations have well-known risks, exemplified in reality television shows like Discovery Channel's "Deadliest Catch" and History Channel's "Ax Men." These jobs are considered hazardous because we all know that people die doing them. But what else makes a job dangerous, aside from the commute? Any type of job that causes a substantial risk of injury or illness, whether seen immediately or through long-term exposure, can be considered dangerous. One doesn't have to get tangled in a fishing net or hit by a falling tree to get hurt at work. Workers can find themselves under extreme stress, in harsh environments, or exposed to chemicals and hazardous pathogens. These professions might not garner the shock and awe that comes from working in the obviously risky occupations, but these six jobs are surprisingly dangerous.
