Just because a job is dangerous doesn’t mean that it’s not a good job. Pilots, policemen, firefighters and commercial divers love their jobs, and there is usually fierce competition to fill every vacant position. But some dangerous jobs are not recommended at all, regardless of the danger involved. They are dirty, hard and offer very little in return for all the hard and risky work.
Here are the top 3 worst dangerous jobs:
Without doubt, this is the worst dangerous job around, and probably one of the worst jobs that exist. Meat slaughter house workers kill animals, and then cut, hack and saw their corpses all day long.
The job involves working in processing factories that tend to be overheated in summer and very cold at winter. They stand up for the duration of their shifts, move around heavy pieces of meat and are surrounded by strong, unpleasant smells, blood and inner organs.
Meat packers and slaughter house workers have high injury and illness rates. Most of the injuries come from the sharp knives and saws they work with, but slipping on the wet floor or being crushed by heavy chinks of meat is not uncommon either.
To top it all off, the salary is very low. Meat packers and slaughterers can look to earn around $11.60 an hour, or $24000 annually.
Garbage men. Their job is to take out the trash – all day and every day. On top of being at the bottom of the professional food chain, they are also prone to be killed or injured in traffic accidents, or even worse – being scooped up into the garbage truck and getting crushed.
Definitely one of the worst jobs around.
There are some good things about working as a logger – such as working outdoors, being surrounded by nature, and even working in teams. But there are more negatives then positives to this job:
Working outdoors means being exposed to nature – hot, cold, rain and sunshine. Logging workers also have to work their way around difficult terrain and handle any insects, reptiles and animals that come their way. And last but not least, this is the 2nd most dangerous job in America
