Which jobs are the most dangerous — without being fatal?

If you’re contemplating a career, or even just a part-time job, one thing to consider is an occupation’s rate of injury and illness.

Money Talks News analyzed the latest data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, for 2018, to determine which jobs in the private sector have the highest rates of nonfatal injuries and illnesses that involved days away from work.

As you look through these rates, note that the rate of injury and illness all across private-sector jobs is 89.7 incidences for every 10,000 workers. All of the jobs on our list are at least three times that.
