Health.com: Best and Worst Jobs For Your Health

Transportation workers

Worst

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, transit and intercity bus drivers had the highest rate of injuries and illnesses of all occupations measured in 2010, and light and delivery truck drivers weren't that far behind.

Bus, truck, and taxi drivers face long hours behind the wheel, often breathing in exhaust fumes or eating unhealthy fast food.

Sleep problems and on-the-job sleepiness are common among transportation professionals (which can include pilots and train operators). And then there's the biggest threat of all: Motor-vehicle accidents are consistently the leading cause of workplace fatalities in the United States.
