25 Most Dangerous Jobs in the World

13. Linemen and Power Workers


Working on electricity is bad and dangerous enough, but working on electricity high above the ground is even far more dangerous. Linemen and power workers actually work on electricity high above the ground, mostly from a helicopter. These surreal-looking workers are tasked with fixing and maintaining various power lines and cables from high above the ground. It’s always their duty to ensure that electricity is well-supplied and working without no faults. The problem is; when disaster strike in line of duty, any involved lineman or power worker has zero chances of survival given the high voltage power that these power cables transmit.
