It has been said that the sorriest job in the world is looking for one. I would say that in every line of work there is some sort of safety hazard that could harm. Today in the Top 5 at 7:45 I highlight the most dangerous jobs in Wyoming.

The Top 5 at 7:45 airs weekdays with me, Gary Freeman, on KGAB Mornings.

  1. Ranching – When you’re dealing with hills, terrain and livestock, anything can happen. It is not uncommon to hear of someone falling off of their horse to their death or sustaining a life long injury.
  2. Electrician – Hot electrical wires are to be highly respected. One good zap, and it could be over for you.
  3. Welder – Inhalation of zinc oxide, which is used in metal fabrications, can cause metal fume fever. Metal fume fever can cause chills, nausea, cough and fatigue. Humans were created to breath air, not metal fumes.
  4. Oil Drilling – If you don’t pay attention around a lot of that heavy drilling equipment, you could lose a limb, be crushed or even die. Be very careful around oil rigs.
  5. Carpenters – I doesn’t take much to fall or put a nail from a nail gun through your finger. Make sure you are tied off in high places and ensure that you use 3 points of contact when you’re not on the ground.
