The retail giant Amazon is setting a precedent in another area–by committing to investing $800M in worker safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. From purchasing testing equipment to hygiene-related cleaning supplies to developing new roles and practices, Amazon’s efforts to strengthen its safety culture closely align with the insights and recommendations provided to companies by the National Safety Council (NSC).
If there’s an organization that has been making news in the last few years, Amazon tops the list. From its highly popular Amazon Prime program to their use of AI in elevating logistics- and transportation-related processes, they are also an early adopter of technology and a champion of the customer experience.
Now they about to make a mark in the worker safety area.
