Always a half dozen ways to die. Explosion, Fire, railroad tanker cars full of chlorine gas, 1000 psi pumps exploding, thousand gallon tanks of hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, concentrated cyanide solution, corrosive, flammable lethal neurotoxins venting from a ruptured pressure vessel, falling from scaffolding, one drop of dimethyl mercury through a pinprick in safety gloves 100% fatal, high voltage, 500°F high pressure steam pipes, big high speed machinery could tear your arm off at the shoulder without slowing down, violent runaway chemical reactions, chemical burns, complex hydraulic manifold that if you turn 2 valves in the wrong sequence, you die, etc.

After years of that, very few things scare me.
