Deadliest Industrial Jobs in the U.S.

OSHA Report Reveals Which Industrial Jobs Experience the Highest Rates of Fatal Injuries Among Employees

According to a recent report by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), these are the most deadly jobs in the United States:

  • Agriculture, forestry, and fishing
  • Mining
  • Construction
  • Manufacturing
  • Machine operation
  • Transportation operation
  • Public utilities

However, the nature of these jobs requires that workers use heavy, dangerous machinery in order to fulfill their duties. As a result, laborers in the aforementioned industries experience a higher rate of fatal injury than those in other fields.

A large portion of the reported fatal injuries occurred when workers were adjusting or otherwise attempting to work with dangerous machines, performing tasks such as:

  • Unjamming objects from work equipment
  • Cleaning, repairing, or maintaining equipment
  • Installing or setting up equipment
  • Adjusting or inspecting equipment
  • Making adjustments to electrical components while doing any of the above

Others involved accidentally turning on machines, failing to turn them off, or being nearby when a machine experienced a malfunction or error.

If you have been injured on the job due to dangerous machinery, you are likely experiencing a great deal of personal suffering and financial hardship. Allow us to come alongside you and advocate for you as you seek fair compensation for your injuries.
