In brief: Uranium miners
And workers are #1 and #2.
Airplane crews are #3. But no, safeguards put in place over the last 100 years have limited exposure to far below cancer-causing levels. Only an employer who was in blatant violation of international standards for safety (as established by iaea) would submit a worker to unsafe levels. Sadly, such employers do exist in the third world.

Third place are aircrews (pilots and flight attendants) because they are exposed to more cosmic rays way up high in the atmosphere! more info: http://www.Iaea.Org/publications/booklets/radpeopleenv/pdf/chapter_9.Pdf.
