I would advise workers in those professions to avoid drinking or having hangovers at work. But I know some of them drink beer after work every day. I do not think they can be sober at work after binging the previous night. I remember when I worked at a certain establishment high-rise workers got beer every evening. I wondered how they could be sober the next morning. Now look at the report of people hurt or killed in those professions. I know one of the factors is they go to work with hangovers. Please counsel them to avoid drinking if they are working the next day.
If Moslims want to be here in America then they need to stick to our laws just as we have to stick to their's. If I want a ham sandwitch in a restruant then I will eat one. Moslims go home if they don't like our ways.....
What are those dangers at work have to do with Muslims? You make me sick with such irrelevant posting to the article. I know Arabs and most people in the Mid-East wear robes or cassocks. I just wonder how they can work on highway construction, roofing or work at farms when they are dressed in white clean robes. Anybody with ideas?
Dave, did not have one friend that wasn't a Democrat / Liberal . The big guy's like Bill Clinton really enjoyed talking about how many young intern's they nailed . Yeah, hate to see you go Dave, here's hoping a horse kick's you in the nut's
Not on the list, Correctional Officers?
Ha, I agree...stupid list:) Why aren't porn stars on the list?
These statistics are typically based on industrial accidents reported to OSHA. Most police officers are actually murdered in the line of duty. These intentional deaths are not classified as job related accidents and thus they are reported to the FBI for statistical record keeping, rather than OSHA. The fact is that police officer deaths are consistently in the top 10 lethal occupations by percentile, and top 3 based on raw numbers.
176 police officers killed in 2011 and 418 US military members KIA.
91 firefighter deaths in 201182 in 2012
72% of all statistics are made up on the spot. The National Fire Protection Agency reported 61 Fatalities in 2011, and 64 in 2012.http://www.nfpa.org/research/statistical-reports/fire-service-statisticsWith 1,100,450 Firefighters in 2011, that's 0.055%, or about 55 per million.
Association, not "Agency", sorry.And I should have reported that as 5.5 per 100,000, the equivalent "Fatality work rate" used in this article. (Compare to 121.2 in the Fishing Industry. That is, you're >20X more likely to die in the fishing industry, than as a fire fighter.)Furthermore, about half of those Firefighter fatalities were "Sudden Cardiac Deaths" (read Heart Attacks).
They left out an important category: Caregivers. 65% of all caregivers caring for a family member with a chronic illness predecease those in their care. I'm going to the funeral of one of those "statistics" today.
That was so much more boring than I expected it to be.
