11 Most Dangerous Jobs in the WorldBy Vika https://pictolic.com/en/article/11-most-dangerous-jobs-in-the-world
If you are looking for a new job and it is on the list below, you should think twice. These professions may seem romantic, exciting, and well-paid, but "dangerous" is the best word for them.
Pictolic has compiled a list of the most dangerous jobs in the world. Which one do you think is the most dangerous?
1. Milker of snakes.
Snake milkers spend their days extracting venom (only from certain types of snakes). Snake venom can be used for many things, but the most important is its use in medical research or the production of antidotes.
Despite the fact that safety measures are applied in the work, each milking process is very dangerous.
Even though safety equipment is used, this job still forces you to deal with deadly tools, heavy lifting, and working at heights.
Surprisingly, the profession of a courier is considered very dangerous in many countries around the world. Imagine that you are delivering pizza to a party of drunk people or a package to a person who is in a terrible mood. Couriers are often robbed.
4. Rodeo rider.
This work became popular in the late 90s when the promise of big money for an 8-second performance seemed very attractive. In fact, the payoff may not be worth the consequences. Some figures show that a rodeo rider suffers one major injury in every 15 attempts to ride a bull.
5. Mountain guide.
Climbing a high mountain peak is a dream for enough people to justify the creation of a new job: a mountain guide. Their job is not only to lead the way, but to carry heavy gear, be the first to try to find a dangerous path, and be responsible for the safety of others.
6. Microchip manufacturer.
A number of hazardous chemicals, such as arsenic, are used in the production of computer chips. Although microchips are not immediately fatal, long-term consequences include miscarriage, birth defects, respiratory disease, and cancer.
7. War correspondent.
Showing the truth is just as important as treating people, but telling the truth comes with a higher risk. The list of dangers includes kidnapping, torture, and murder. When you are in the midst of a war, you are not marked as a journalist, but as an enemy.
8. Work on the oil platform.
Drillers work with one of the most flammable substances in the world. Sometimes they work 16 hours straight or even a whole day or 2 without sleep. Fires and explosions, drowning are among the most common deaths on oil rigs.
9. Tamer of crocodiles.
This art can lead you right into the mouth of a crocodile. Tamers risk their lives by placing body parts between the crocodile's jaws, playing with their tails, and doing all sorts of crazy things.
The lumberjack is one of the most dangerous professions, as the death rate in it is 20 times higher than in any other profession. You have to deal with heavy machines on a daily basis. As a result, most deaths are due to equipment failure and falling trees.
Don't think of fishing as something peaceful and meditative. Fishing is the most dangerous profession and makes it so bad weather and other incidents. Fishermen have the highest mortality rate.
