In May of this year, Amazon announced the launch of their comprehensive “Working Well” program that focuses on employee health and safety. The primary goal of the program is to create healthier, happier and more productive employees. The program is part of the company’s investment of more than $300 million into safety projects in 2021, and its mission to be Earth’s Safest Place to Work.
Of particular importance is the program’s focus on reducing workplace injuries. Amazon reports that 40% of their work-related injuries are musculoskeletal disorders (“MSD”). This includes sprains and strains caused by repetitive motion, a common issue in warehouse environments. This statistic is not unique to Amazon. According to the World Health Organization, musculoskeletal disorders top the list of workplace injuries in the U.S. and affect 1.71 billion people globally.
