One Of The World’s Most Dangerous Jobs Is Absolute Insanity

If you think your job is tough, try having to climb over 1,700 feet just to start the work day. It’s one of the most dangerous jobs on Earth.

When a transmission tower is in need of maintenance, these are the guy’s that have to make the climb to fix it. And yes… even if it’s the light bulb that needs changing.

The scariest part of the video is where OSHA rules allows for free climbing (no attachments) unless under certain conditions such as high wind. Crazy right?! If your the least bit afraid of heights, the video at the end of this article will probably give you a heart attack.
