Deathrate of police officers is about 8 out of every 100000Deathrate of firemen 2.7 out of 100000Deathrate of #10 is 22 out of 100000.Read the link. This is based of the goverment statistics not personal thoughts.


AGAIN PEOPLE I DID NOT CREAT THE LIST. THE LIST IS BASED ON THE CHANCE OF DEATH OUT OF 100,000 WORKERS. THE STATISTICS ARE GIVEN OUT BY THE GOVERMENT.

For those asking why 4 is noy safe this is a SHORT list of what could go wrong.

Trucks catch fire, guy fall out of truck and get run over by their truck, equipment breaks, people run them over (friends with a guy who got pinned between truck and a car. His leg was partialy severed. He almost died and lost his leg. He is young), people slip and fall of truck hiting their head off the pavment bashing their skull open, poked by hyperdermic needles that carry illnesses, crushed when they have to go fix something inside the truck and something hapens and they get compacted the list go on snd on and on. Dh has had MANY close calls. Normaly from idiot drivers. Some from malfunctioning equipment, 4 times his truck has had chemical fires, he almost had his head bashed in when a chain pulling up one of hose extra large dumpsters full onto the truck, snaped and wized by his head by mere inchesinches.

Nope. Police officer (well, almost).

Kinda surprised that isn't on the list.

Does oil field work fall under #10? Dh isn't a roughneck, but that's the most dangerous job in our area so I'm just curious.
