One time that I went into a hospital I slowly realized that my life is in the hands of people I've never met and don't know.

Your work is dangerous but at least you know the people you work with. I hope they are competent, conscientious and not mad at you.

BTW,
I used to get mail offers from insurance companies showing their yearly premiums for insuring people in various trades against accidents.
So, if you want to know how dangerous your work is relative to roofers, electricians, etc., you just look at what they want to insure you.
The ranking surprised me but these companies know way more about risk than I do.

"Your work is dangerous but at least you know the people you work with. I hope they are competent, conscientious and not mad at you. "

Looks like a couple guys without ear protection in the photos. Personally i prefer jobs were the biggest danger is getting a paper cut.

It isn't loud enough for ear protection and it is nice when you can hear your spotter tell you if the earth is trying to eat you.

He makes me crawl into the deep holes to inspect the soil to determine if the soil shore ups are really necessary.
