Do you ever feel safe at work? This is a question that many people would admit turning a blind eye on simply because they probably sit at a computer for more than ten hours every day and feel safe in the little confines of their offices. However, has it ever crossed your mind that sitting at a computer for days on end could possibly be considered one of the most dangerous jobs taking into consideration that it damages your cardiovascular and skeletal systems? Well, sitting behind a computer in the office could be more dangerous than ever imagined. Fortunately, it would be considered much safer when compared to other occupations around the world.
There are relatively exotic occupations that carry with them underlying dangers that can lead to life-changing injuries if not deaths. From firefighters that risk their lives to save other people’s lives to maximum security prison guards, here’s a closer look at 25 of the most dangerous jobs in the world.
25. Bush Pilots
Flying small planes is not essentially dangerous. However, flying in an adverse environment where the sky turns foggy and becomes invisible without warning is a recipe for disaster. These are the typical scenarios where you often see in the news that a bush pilot rammed his/her plane into a mountain or a fatal crash landing occurred.
According to BLS, bush piloting is one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. When these planes crash, they break into pieces and so are the lives that are in it. While many such fatal accidents may be blamed on human error, the job is simply very risky with accidents likely to occur all in a flash.
