Logging is one of the most dangerous occupations and has the highest fatality rate of any other occupation after commercial fishing. Loggers have difficult jobs working with heavy equipment and massive weights, often on uneven terrain in all kinds of weather conditions. Even the most experienced logger can become seriously injured or even killed.
