TOP-10 most difficult and dangerous occupations in the world

TOP-10 most difficult and dangerous occupations in the world

More than 400 thousand professions exist in the world, some lose relevance in a rapidly changing world, new ones appear instead, some do not become obsolete for many years. "Where to go to work?", - at least once in a lifetime every person thinks.

State institutions and private enterprises, large and small businesses, work for themselves, work in the office or on freelancing - the choice is great, everyone will find something to their liking and vocation. Let's talk about professions where people risk their lives for the sake of the cause. Perhaps you are looking for just such a job, and perhaps it will give you a fresh look at your profession and change the attitude towards it.


One of the most physically difficult and dangerous professions in the world is a miner. The International Labour Organization has banned women and adolescents from working underground. The miner's working shift lasts from 6 to 8 hours – normally, but employers often do not follow the rules. The work of a miner is fraught with various risks:

  • explosion of methane and coal dust
  • fire
  • violation of oxygen supply to the mine
  • mountain strikes and much more that a person can not foresee in advance.

Force majeure situations happen often, so the work is not for the faint of heart. Miners are carefully trained before they go to development, and upon reaching the age of 45, given the harmful working conditions, they are provided with a pension. Despite the fact that many processes are automated, mining labor is still in demand – and still one of the hardest.


In step with the miner on the danger of the profession walks a sapper - a specialist in the disposal of explosive shells in the war or post-war period. From the competent work of the sapper directly depend on the lives of thousands of people. Ruthless statistics report that up to 10,000 people die annually from unexploded explosive devices. The task of the sapper is to find and neutralize ammunition. It is difficult to do this, because the same professionals lay explosives. Robots significantly help a person in a difficult and dangerous sapper craft, but cope only by 80%, unlike a person who performs 99.6%. The remaining 0.4% take the lives of brave heroes who were not afraid to choose such a dangerous profession.


Or a lumberjack - a person who is engaged in cutting trees and preparing them for transportation. The profession is considered very traumatic and involves a large number of risks: from injury to professional equipment to the fall of a felled tree. Of course, technology comes to the rescue, and once the main tools - an axe and a saw - were replaced by chainsaws and special equipment. Nevertheless, without the physical strength of a trained and trained specialist in logging can not do.


The work of an electrician is associated with the danger of getting an electric shock. Sad statistics report 33 deaths per 100,000 workers, which is a lot. In addition to working with stress, installers have to work at altitude and in any weather, whether it is snow or rain. The profession is chosen by brave people.


A policeman is a person for whom heroism is a direct duty. Risking their own health, and sometimes their lives, police and security forces save the lives of citizens of the country to which they swore allegiance. Chases, pursuits and shootings are not the fiction of an action-packed detective, but the typical everyday life of law enforcement officers.


Fishing enthusiasts will say that there is nothing complicated in the profession of a fisherman, and they will make a big mistake. Sailors and fishermen spend many weeks in the open sea - an alien and dangerous element for humans. The work of a fisherman is risky and is associated with a large number of accidents, many emergency situations occur in the sea.


One of the most romantic professions is also classified as dangerous. In the event of a plane crash, the chances of escaping the pilots are minimal. They are responsible for the lives of passengers on board and take on the burden of responsibility for their rescue in the event of an emergency situation. Stress in the life of pilots is abundant, so that strong spirits and emotionally stable people go to the profession.


A rare and another dangerous profession. Drillers work on oil and gas production - a physically difficult and traumatic occupation. Specialists work in harsh climatic conditions, sometimes in the middle of the ocean, in case of misfortune they risk not waiting for the professional help of doctors. Not everyone will decide on such work, hence the high demand for drillers.


About the complexity and danger of the work of firefighters do not have to say much. They save the lives of others, risking their own - they can burn alive or be poisoned by carbon monoxide. Many firefighters are prone to respiratory diseases, which significantly reduces the quality of life, plus stress, which in working with fire can not be avoided.


Thanks to the domestic stage and serials, the profession of a trucker is shrouded in romance. In fact, not everyone can do this hard work. Many hours in a row, in any weather, the driver is in tension behind the wheel. Overnight stays in the parking lots right in the car, the lack of a normal shower, toilet and hot food, add the quality of roads and the level of crime - and romance as never happened.
