25 Most Dangerous Jobs Released

Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC || 8-Feb-2018

Workplace accidents can happen at any company but the type of industry can determine how dangerous an accident really can be. The 25 most dangerous jobs list was released and the top of the list was logging related jobs, fishing industry employment and aircraft pilots and flight engineers. These fields all pose dangers even though companies are required to abide by strict rules and regulations. Slips, trips and falls can prove to be serious in these fields but are always a risk at any job.

Safety standards are put in place to help protect employees from job related accidents. The Occupational Safety and Health Act, known as OSHA, were established to enforce safety standards in the workplace. Any company that has a workplace accident is required to report it to OSHA. Depending on the severity of the accident an investigation may be needed. Companies are expected to follow the rules and regulations of OSHA and to do everything possible to give employees a safe working environment. However, some industries are far more dangerous than others so companies may enforce even stricter rules for employees. Anyone that is hurt at work and requires medical attention should contact a personal injury attorney immediately. An experienced personal injury attorney will investigate the victim’s case and determine if they are able to seek legal action for their injuries.
