US Work-Related Deaths


Fishing is the most dangerous job in the US by a wide margin, with 121.2 deaths per 100,000 workers. The spread from most-to-least dangerous is substantial and there are a few surprises here: firefighters, for example, have a lower death rate than the national average. I would like to see the stats for soldiers, another hero-type profession along with police offers and firefighters, but it was sadly not included.
