Top 10 Dangerous Jobs

1 2

America is going through an economic meltdown but no matter how desperate you are, you should not apply for any of the following.


1. Cell Phone Tower Workers

A cell phone tower worker undoubtedly has the most dangerous job in the world. Because cell phone companies try their best to build higher towers, these workers are not considered to be all that lucky as far as jobs are concerned. The worker can lose his balance or get electrocuted.


2. Commercial Fisherman

Fishermen spend a lot of time out on sea where the weather can get extremely rough and the waves, quite violent. It’s not like they work with lifejackets so if they fall into the water, they will definitely not survive.


3. Pilots and Flight Engineers

Flight engineers have long working hours and are exposed to harmful chemicals. Not only that, but the pilots also have to fly low around power lines that are virtually invisible to the naked eye.


4. Lumberjacks

These workers use extremely bulky spinning saws and because people think that there is nothing to it, they are expected to finish their work within a few minutes. The pressure can prove to be too much for the poor guy and he can meet with an awful accident.


5. Steel and Iron Construction Workers

You didn’t think that the metal frames around buildings and bridges built themselves did you? These works have to be extremely careful when they are doing their job and not move around too much because if they do, they will fall and break open their skulls.

    Who wrote this list…a child?
    There are numerous jobs including police officer,soldier,taxicab driver,etc that are equally (if not more so) as dangerous as the above.
    Fail…try again.

    Pilot? You must be joking, how many pilots end up dying on their job? In 2009 there were 154 plane crashes (source and the pilot did not die in all of those crashes, most of them wernt even fatal to anyone.

    Besides pilots have it very easy, they can use the autopilot so it shouldnt even be called working it should be called “hours of boredom”.

    I work 2200 ft underground in an Alabama Coal Mine. I see more hazards in one shift than some of these guys do in a year. A pilot? Truckdriver? A freakin Farmer? Are you kidding? I work in the deepest vertical shaft Coal mine in North America. Roof falls, rib rolls, methane gas, chemicals, ect. Look into it.

    I think its wrong to compare Parkers situation to the heroes of the past as the club had complete control in those days and the difference in the level of football between the divisions wasnt so great. Fact is my all time hero Bobby Moore would have gone to Tottenham at his peak had he been allowed to do so and Brooking was sought after by Clough when Derby were at their peak.. chances are they would have gone in todays enviroment and who could have blamed them! Dicanio wanted to go to Man u when they showed an. interest as well. We lost Scott Parker because of the state our club got in to and if it wasnt for his outstanding efforts we would have gone down a season earlier. I think hes up there with the greats but agree legend status goes to those who played for a lot longer. He would have been told to hand in a transfer request by both clubs to ensure we get the maximum from the transfer. If hes ever back at upton park he will get a big cheer from me. Thanks Scott it was a privelage to watch you but as many have said above its time to move on and lets hope we get an exciting arrival to alleviate the dispapointment
