Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “The 34 deadliest jobs in America”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics documented how many people died on the job in 2018 for the equivalent of every 100,000 people who held that job.

To find the most dangerous jobs in America, we identified the jobs from the Bureau's list with the highest fatal injury rate. Each of these jobs has a fatal injury rate above the national average for all workers of 3.5 per 100,000 full-time workers.

Overall, the greatest number of fatal work injuries resulted from transportation incidents. Violence or other injuries by persons or animals; falls, slips, and trips; and contact with objects and equipment were other leading causes of workplace deaths.

Here are the 34 deadliest jobs in America, along with their 2018 fatality rates per 100,000 full-time equivalent workers, and a description of what workers in these jobs do from the Department of Labor's O*NET careers database or the Bureau's Occupational Outlook Handbook.

What they do: Use hand-welding, flame-cutting, hand soldering, or brazing equipment to weld or join metal components or to fill holes, indentations, or seams of fabricated metal products.
