Top 5 most dangerous jobs in America:
- Nursing aids, orderlies and attendants
- Truck Drivers
- Police Officers
Together, these five occupations account for 20% of all non-fatal workplace injuries. Most of the injuries are musoskelatal — every thing from broken bones, strained muscles, repetitive stress injuries and the like.
