10 Most Dangerous Jobs

As is my wont, the other morning before office hours I was reading articles about workers compensation issues throughout the United States, when I came across a piece based on recent reports by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Center for Disease Control, OSHA and other organizations. The authors had used these reports and came up with the 10 Most Dangerous Jobs in America in 2016. Without further ado, the 10 Most Dangerous Jobs in the U.S. for 2016 were as follows:

•1) Construction Worker;

•2) Correctional Officers;

•3) Emergency Medical Technicians;

•4) Farmers;

•5) Fire Fighters;

•6) Nursing Care Providers;

•7) Police Officers;

•8) Taxi Drivers;

•9) Tractor Trailer Truck Drivers and

•10) Veterinarians.

Some of these jobs make perfect sense (e.g. Construction Workers, Fire Fighters, Police Officers and Truck Drivers), but I don’t think anyone imagined Veterinarians being on the list. Convenience Store Clerks, Metal Workers, C.N.A.s would have been far about Veterinarians in my mind, but I had to remember that many Vets work with livestock and other large animals (think about the book/show “All Things Great and Small”).
