9. High Voltage Cable Inspectors
This might not sound like that dangerous of a profession, but we have to consider where these high voltage lines run. Often on huge towering poles. And how do they access these lines? By dangling from a helicopter. If swinging around hundreds of feet in the air isn’t enough, they have to deal with high voltage lines that carry a deadly amount of voltage. We all owe thanks to these ballsy guys who keep the lights on and our beer cold.
