That species might only last a few weeks a year, but they aren't on shore drinking the rest of the year. The other fishing might not be as demanding, but you view that shit as a career and it has to be towards the top of the "The fuck if I could do it" scale.

crab fishing could be made a lot safer and less physically difficult and labor intensive with more mechanization.

Then again, the same could be said about most industries.

collecting rocks out of farm fields, by hand.

Every damn spring 160 acres by hand. handled every rock in the field at least three times. Dig it out, carry it to the closest pile. later load the pile onto the trailer. Then empty the trailer.

My uncle paid me $2.00 an hour to do it. Then he sold the rocks to people who used them to build fences, houses and outbuildings. Damn german immigrant farmer had to buy a farm land that was carved out by a glacier

hardrock jackleg stope mining is quite a bit more labor intensive than coal mining.

Eh, I operated a jack hammer that size for quite awhile.  After a few days you get used to it.  At least miners don't have to worry about the weather.

Miners have a different kind of weather to worry about.  Instead of rain falling on them, they have to worry about 8000 lb chunks of rock falling down.

+1 Working a set of rod wrenches on a pulling unit will take the baby fat off ya pretty quick. Slinging tongs around on a drilling rig is no cake walk either.

Yeah, well in construction someone is always moving heavy crap over your head (not much difference between a rock that will kill you or a stack of drywall), then there all the vehicles moving everywhere you have to watch out for, plus the weather.

I remember some days that were a balmy 30F and having to dump the water out of the bags on the belt periodically because they were full of water (seriously heavy rain).  Then there was siding 4 stories up on a plank covered with ice.

You just do it, and you get used to it pretty fast.

Alaskan salmon fishermen and crabbers.  Mine workers and oil rig workers.  Just to name a few.  

One of the most hazardous (not the most physically demanding) of the "common" civilian jobs is delivery driver.  Especially food delivery.

Probably longshoreman used to be among them, but these days I suppose it's mostly automated or with cranes. I'm sure there are still some people who have to move heavy crap all day, somewhere in the world.

The list of most dangerous industries is pretty well defined, at least according to the dept of labor:


Agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting
Fatality rate (per 100,000 workers): 29.6
Number of fatalities: 646

Mining
Fatality rate (per 100,000 workers): 27.8
Number of fatalities: 190

Transportation and warehousing
Fatality rate (per 100,000 workers): 16.3
Number of fatalities: 832

Construction
Fatality rate (per 100,000 workers): 10.8
Number of fatalities: 1,226

Utilities
Fatality rate (per 100,000 workers): 6.2
Number of fatalities: 52


i'm thinking more along the lines of most physically demanding, not the most dangerous.  In addition to the jobs already mentioned, i'd also add forest firefighters/smokejumpers.  It doesn't get much more difficult than that.
