A new Federal report lists the deadliest jobs in America.
Making the list, farmers and ranchers, refuse collectors and power line worker.

The top five most dangerous jobs:
1. Fishermen
2. Pilots
3. Loggers
4. Iron and Steel Workers
5. Coal Miners

Last year there were 5,703 occupational deaths in the U.S.
That'd down from years prior.

If the trend continues, it could be the lowest number of deaths since they began counting in 1992.
