45. Death rate over 10 years..
if you estimate the death rate at 5000 over ten years, then don't you have to likewise multiply by 10 the number of people employed in the job since the rest of the figures presented by the OP are in death/100K per year! 5K deaths/10 years = ana verage of 500/year -- That would knock your solider down to 3.3/100K to 5/100k working with your manpower estimate.


Here is another link that shows cops in the top 10 of most dangerous jobs. But they do get a lot more attention than those poor garbage collectors at #9. So go hug your trash guy!
