Statistics Reveal The Most Dangerous Jobs of 2018

SafeWork Australia has revealed which are the most dangerous industries in Australia, according to statistics and so far the transport, postal services and warehousing sector is the most deadly with 29 fatalities this year.

Last year the agriculture, forestry and fishing industry was at the top of the list but some believe our growing online shopping tendencies may have contributed to the change.

Australia’s online shopping has increased dramatically this year and the trend is only expected to continue, putting more pressure on the transport, postal services and warehousing sector.

Although it didn’t top the list of most deadly jobs, the construction sector does feature in the top 3, with 19 fatalities recorded this year already.
