Data snack: Dying on the job in Canada


Today’s mining disaster in Ukraine had me wondering about how many Canadian miners die every year. I had wrongly believed that mining would be the most-dangerous job in Canada.

It isn’t.

Substantially more fishers die on the job. Real estate agents do much better.

  1. There are many details that need to be addressed when making an auto purchase.
    If you are unaware of these details, you could find yourself overpaying
    for the car that is not right for you. You will find some great advice in the article
    that follows that will assist you in purchasing your next car.

  2. obviously like your web-site but you need to check the spelling on quite a few of your
    posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and
    I find it very bothersome to inform the truth on the other hand I’ll definitely come again again.

  3. I would be really interested to know how police officers rank in fatal injuries per 100,000 thousand employees. Many people revere police officers ion the presumption that their work is very dangerous. I suspect it is dangerous, at least on occasion, but I recall my Dad once asserting that a higher % of farmers are killed working than policemen. Any chance of tracking that down?
