4th Most Dangerous Job – Power Linemen

Danger? What danger?

It’s pretty common knowledge that the job a lineman does is risky. Just how risky wasn’t quite realized until the year 1990, when the National Safety Council reported that electrocutions were the fourth leading cause of work-related traumatic death.

A few people started to pay attention. But it was only a few. After all, it’s a man’s choice to become a lineman, and though everyone knows they’re working with electricity, somehow to most people, it looks as simple as the work the cable guy does.

What linemen really do.

Since then, word of the skills, strength, risks and endurance of the lineman has reached people and touched their hearts and minds. In fact, t-shirts are out, races honor fallen linemen and movies are being made to depict the work of the guys doing the 4th most dangerous job.
