Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics' National Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries show that the fatal work injury rate for loggers is 127.8 per 100,000 full-time workers. A total of 62 logging workers were killed on the job last year.

The census data was just released Thursday and offers a preliminary count. The final 2012 data will come out in the spring of 2014 and it shouldn't be much different, Forbes said.
