How dangerous is this occupation?

The Department of Labor’s online occupational database, O*NET, tracks almost 1,000 occupations and workplace characteristics, and assigns scores to each job, based on characteristics that pose risks to the health of a worker.

According to O*NET, workers in the profession of metal pourers and casters “operate hand-controlled mechanisms to pour and regulate the flow of molten metal into molds to produce castings or ingots.”

Among the top three work environment characteristics that present health risks to metal pourers and casters, the O*NET scores were (100 being the highest):

  • Exposure to contaminants: 100
