  1. It is surprising to know that some jobs appear to be simple and easy on the surface, but in reality, they pose major risks to workers and employees. I know that danger comes in every work territory, but I must say that these jobs take the cake. I do hope that companies who are into these industries are taking into consideration the safety of their workers and are providing them with better compensation.
