This week we’ve reached number 6 in our countdown of jobs that are likely to affect premiums when applying for life insurance.
The role of an estate agent appears to be primarily an admin based profession. Dealing with a stack of paperwork and the odd viewing here and there, it’s hardly the daring job one would expect to find on a list of dangerous careers. However, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recorded 70 major injuries and 4 deaths within the rental and leasing activities industry between 2012 and 2013!
An estate agent spends time working alone, and showing prospective buyers and customers around can leave the agents vulnerable to possible attacks.
Risks associated with being an estate agent:
Violence from customers
Slips, trips and falls
