Top 14 Stressful Jobs

r-MOST-STRESSFUL-JOBS-large570Is your job stressful? But could it get worse? I’m here to tell you as bad as you think you have it, someone has it worse. Strict deadlines, brutal criticism, or having someone’s life in your hands qualify as key factors to a stressful work environment. Laurence Shatkin, Ph. D, career information expert, compared the stress levels of the 747 occupations identified by the U.S. Department of Labor to come up with this list..

This list is ranked by the stress tolerance for each job, which measures how often employees face high-stress situations. It also includes the consequences of employee errors, which measures how serious it would be if mistakes were made, and the job’s time pressure, which measures the strictness of deadlines. All factors are based on a scale from zero to 100 for prevalence in each job, where a higher rating signals high stress levels.
