Our list of the 10 most dangerous jobs in the country hits number 7 this week, as we attempt to understand which professions are likely to see the biggest increase in premiums when applying for life insurance.


It was reported that between 2012 and 2013, there were a whopping 1,619 minor injuries within the UK retail sector. Thankfully none led to a fatality. As you might expect, shopkeepers who work nights are at greater risk from criminal assaults and, unsurprisingly, this is one of the biggest risks within the retail industry. [1]

Potential risks involved when working in retail:

Violence from customers

Lifting heavy loads

Sprains and strains

Slips, trips and falls

Working unsocial hours can harm health
