Administrative assistant


Office administrative assistants and support staff had the fewest reported injuries and illnesses in a University of Georgia 2012 study.

"There is certainly a level of control that comes with the predictability of a job that's in an office setting, where you come in and you leave at the same time every day and pretty much know what to expect every day," says Dr. Chosewood. However, overuse injuries from typing, back pain from sitting, and weight gain from an inactive lifestyle are a risk.

And these positions aren't for everyone; prone to overwork and under-appreciation, they can trigger depression.
