Which occupation is the most hazardous?
Industrial accidents have the potential to occur in just about any profession. However, some occupations are reportedly more hazardous than others – as data from the Health and Safety Commission (HSC) suggests.
To come to its findings, the HSC looked at how likely individuals were to die each year in certain industries. For example, the organisation believed that mining and quarrying was the most dangerous profession, believing that one in every 9,200 employees will sustain fatal injuries at work.
Furthermore, the HSC stated that industrial accidents will claim the lives of:
- One in every 17,000 construction workers.
- One in every 17,200 agricultural labourers.
- One in every 34,000 individuals working in metal fabrication or manufacturing.
- One in every 77,000 people employed in the manufacturing industry.
Although this list is not exhaustive, the HSC's data suggests the above occupations are some the most dangerous in Britain – and employers in these professions should work extra hard to prevent staff members from sustaining personal injury in industrial accidents.
