What are the most dangerous jobs in Florida resulting in on the job injures. Truck Drivers have the highest on the job injuroes and death.
Florida Trend breaks down the most dangerous jobs. The typical person killed on the job in Florida is a white male about 50-years-old and is a truck driver earning about $30,000 a year who died in a traffic accident. Truck drivers had the largest category of deaths on the job at 43 in 2007.
Construction workers were next at 29. 21 grounds workers were killed while 16 police officers lost their lives. In all seven officers were gunned down in 2007.
Interestingly, one would think that being a roofer is a dangerous occupation, but it ranks ninth in the list of ten.
As far as being safe on the job in an office, think again. Workplace homicides rose by 46 percent in Florida in 2007, while they were up 13 percent nationwide.
The vast majority- about 85 percent- involved shootings. People to fall victim were police officers as mentioned but also restaurant workers and salespeople. In one case a man was shot during an attempted robbery at a BP station in Tallahassee. In another case, a 63-year-old woman working at Disney, was hit by a ride which knocked her to the ground where she hit her head and died.
Florida has the third highest number of fatalities at work following Texas (527) and California (407). Overall, the good news, if you can call it that, is your chances of dying on the job are slim, about 4.6 per 100,000 workers, but still substantially more than the national average of 3.7 per 100,000.
If you have been injured on the job, call for the injured worker to obtain a workers compensation lawyer.
