Health.com: Best and Worst Jobs For Your Health

Manual laborer

Worst

Jobs working with heavy objects or machinery are risky. There were 65,040 cases of injuries and illness among laborers, stock, and material movers in 2010, a higher number than any other job.

"Some of the more traditional areas of hazardous hard labor—agriculture, fishing, mining, farming—continue to be high-risk jobs, as well, although they now make up smaller portions of the population than they used to," says Dr. Chosewood.

Other jobs high on the Bureau of Labor Statistics' injury and illness list were garbage collectors and highway maintenance workers. CareerCast.com named one occupation—lumberjack—as its Worst Job for 2012.
