Not everyone is lucky enough to be able to work in one of Amazon’s ‘Fulfilment’ centers. But don’t worry even if you haven’t managed to become a minimum wage Amzonian you can still visit one of Amazon’s injury strewn warehouses.
Amazon fulfilment (sic) tours are available around the world. Book a tour today and see for yourself how Amazon achieves one of the highest injury rates in any industry. Thanks to Amazon’s use of invasive technology, unrelenting surveillance and constant employee harassment the company is able to push its workers beyond the limits of safe working practices. In fact Amazon has now achieved a rate of serious injury in its fulfilment centers which is more than double the national average for the warehouse industry.
If you haven’t got the time for a personal ‘fulfilment tour’ then you can observe Amazon’s injury records on Reveal’s Amazon Injury Map. Type in a zip-code or city into the map and you can view a detailed injury record of your nearest Amazon fulfilment center. You can also use the map to check out the injury record of the warehouse which managed any of your Amazon packages by entering the warehouse code on the bottom-left corner of the package’s shipping label.
Select an Amazon warehouse on the map and you can view the number of injuries reported there, its serious injury rate and how that rate compares to the national warehouse industry average.
