So based on the supplied information we have the following data to make educated assumptions:
63,000 tow truck operators
60 tow truck operator deaths annually https://internationaltowingmuseum.org/survivor-fund/
95.2 Deaths per 100,000 workers
Time.com recently posted the "Top 10 Most Dangerous Jobs in America" http://time.com/5074471/most-dangerous-jobs/
Fatal Injuries Total Deaths
per 100,000 workers
Fishers and related fishing workers
Aircraft pilots and flight engineers
Trash and recycling collectors
Iron and steel wokers
Truck and sales drivers
Farmers, ranchers, and other agricultural managers
First-line supervisors of construction trades and extraction workers
Grounds maintenance workers
It appears that we would be included as the second most dangerous job in America.
What does that mean for our industry? What does that say about our incentive programs? What are the impacts to our hiring practices? How could this shape our rate structures? Where is our visibility to the general and motoring public?
Just with these numbers, the towing industry deserves a statistical, professional census performed to better serve our interests.
