The National Consumers League (NCL) has issued its 2011 Five Most Dangerous Jobs for Teens report. The annual study by the nonprofit advocacy group is designed to help teens and their parents select safe jobs this summer—if they can find them.
According to NCL, the five most dangerous jobs for working youth in 2011 are:
Agriculture: Harvesting crops and using machinery
Construction and height work
Traveling youth sales crews
Outside Helper: Landscaping, groundskeeping, and lawn service
Driver/Operator: Forklifts, tractors, and ATVs.
The five worst jobs for teens are not ranked in order; they all share higher-than-normal injury or fatality rates.
