The United States is not just the richest country in the world, it is also the most dangerous job in the country, according a new report from the Brookings Institution.
The report, which was released on Thursday, looked at jobs that involve high risk of injury, including manufacturing, manufacturing, medical devices, food processing, transportation, transportation and food service.
“As the US moves toward more automation, the number of jobs that are at high risk for injury will only increase,” the report said.
The Brookings Institution is the nation’s oldest and most influential think tank.
It is chaired by former Secretary of State and former secretary of defense Robert Gates.
The authors were former Brookings president Mark Green and former Brookings economist Steven Green.
“Automation is going to become the biggest driver of economic growth, the biggest contributor to job creation, and the biggest threat to our social safety net,” Gates said in a statement.
The study also looked at the number and risks of injuries caused by workers in the private sector.
The top 10 industries in terms of injuries per 100,000 workers are: healthcare; manufacturing; education; health care and social assistance; retail trade; public utilities; and finance.
Among those industries, manufacturing is the most vulnerable with about 1.7 injuries per 1,000 employees, followed by retail trade at 1.6.
The lowest risk for injuries in the United States comes from health care, with just 1.1 injuries per 1000 employees.
The most risky industries in the report are transportation, with 2.4 injuries per thousand workers.
The highest-risk industries are agriculture, with 6.6 injuries per 10,000 people, manufacturing and finance with 5.8, and food and beverage with 4.9.
The biggest threat comes from the food service industry, which is responsible for 40% of all injuries, followed closely by the healthcare industry, with 11%.
For the top 10 occupations, there are some commonalities in terms a safety net.
For example, manufacturing was the most likely occupation for people with health insurance to have a family member injured, while food service was the least likely.
But there were also some important differences between those occupations.
Manufacturing workers are much more likely to be older, male, have a college degree, be employed in construction, have less than a high school diploma, and be married.
Food service workers are younger, less likely to have insurance and are more likely in the working-class and poor areas of the country.
The overall safety net for those jobs is low, the report found.
“The safety net is largely a safety-net system,” Green said.
“It’s not designed to protect workers who can’t afford insurance or have health problems.
That’s why we see this huge increase in the number, and especially the risk, of injuries in those industries.”
