Would you dare to plunge hundreds of feet into the bitter cold ocean, toy with man’s wildest predators or soar high into the air from a canon, all in the name of work? There are some people who do. Croftons have searched far and wide, to find the most unusual and dangerous careers from around the globe and the perils that these workers face every day.
We have looked into the obviously dangerous jobs, such as stunt men and fire fighters, as well as some of the more surprising ones, such as window cleaners and landscapers. After much deliberation, the finalists were found and you can see who made the shortlist in our infographic below.

Many of the hazards involved in these unusual overseas careers are apparent from the off, but many of us here in England and Wales are faced with risks at work that we may not necessarily be aware of. Whilst a diver in the tropics of Western Australia recognises that a shark attack could happen at any moment, you may not notice the spilt water on the office floor that has been left by someone else, or the faulty factory machinery that is overdue an inspection.
If you have fallen victim to an accident or injury at work that was not your fault, we are happy to help you make a claim to receive the compensation that you are entitled to. We specialise in areas such as back injuries, assault at work, slips and trips, employer negligence and defective equipment to name a few. You can find more information on our website, or if you would prefer to contact a member of our team, you can either fill in the online contact form or call us free of charge on 0800 2800 094.
