The industrialisation of our economy isn’t disappearing. Far from it. More countries than ever are starting to get further into goods manufacturing. Which means they have an industrial sector growing to support them. But industry brings with it a certain amount of danger. In fact, some jobs are magnitudes more dangerous that the careers most of us have. We may not be in the revolution, where we could expect to work in conditions that were terrible for our health. But we still rely on the work of people who take much more of a daily risk than we do. Some of them in unexpected industries.
We all know that trucks can be one of the most dangerous vehicles on the road. That’s why we’re told to take special care around them when we’re near. But the truckers themselves face a good deal of risk, too. Most companies are obliged to take special care to make sure truckers don’t push themselves too hard. But there are still multiple cases of trucking accidents every year. So much that services like http://clayburgess.com/blog-2/motor-vehicle-accidents/trucking-accident-attorney/ offer legal services specifically for trucking.
Given the size of materials and the machines being worked with, a construction site has always been a dangerous place to work. It’s why a good one is particularly strict on safety rules. Falling materials and tools have been the source of countless injuries. Yet, some believe construction sites are getting even more dangerous as http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/builders-concerned-safety-many-believe-4868794 states. Over 37% in a British poll of construction workers admitted to being or knowing a colleague who has been in an accident over the past year.
Working in the mines has always been a historically dangerous job. Recent technology and safety practices have significantly reduced the risk. As we see from http://arlweb.msha.gov/stats/centurystats/coalstats.asp, the rate of deaths per year has dropped
drastically. But that doesn’t mean that it’s not still dangerous. In recent
years, we have had several stories of trapped coal miners. Yet we hear more of
those that survive than those who don’t. Mining will likely always need manual
labour, and that labour leads to danger.
Of course, the next job on the list also involves heavy industry and the risk of falling materials. In this case, it’s the entire point of logging. Chainsaws and logging machines also pose significant dangers. Logging often takes placed In uneven terrain where a falling or even rolling tree might behave erratically. https://www.osha.gov/SLTC/logging/ has an in-depth look at just some of the responsibilities of logger employers. This only shows just how much focus is put onto added safety.
Although it’s not one you might expect to find on this list, fishing has always been a dangerous job. The waters are hard to predict and boats are often at risk of capsizing. So much that fishers often have to have their own insurance agreements. http://www.hinermangroup.com/blog/insurance/life-insurance-for-crab-lobster-and-long-line-fishing gives an idea of how that works. As long as we have need for the valuable resources and infrastructure of these jobs, we should be looking to make our workers in them as safe as possible.
