Logging/timber cutting most dangerous occupation.
« on: October 15, 2003, 12:43:03 PM »
 I just happened to read an article on today about the most dangerous jobs. According to the bureau of labor statistics logging/timber cutting has the highest death rate per
100,000 workers and most of the deaths were caused by falling trees. You can't be too careful cutting down trees and handling logs. There was a lot of interesting stuff in this article
about different occupations. Very sobering article.
