Amazon is facing a public hearing in Washington state on Monday to address long-standing concerns about workplace safety. State labor regulators have accused Amazon of subjecting employees to increased risk of injuries due to ergonomic strain and musculoskeletal disorders. Despite these allegations, Amazon denies any wrongdoing and claims that its injury rate is improving. The hearing comes at a time when Amazon’s health and safety practices are facing unprecedented scrutiny from federal and state regulators, including investigations into ergonomic injuries and allegations of concealing workplace injuries. Bernie Sanders’s Senate committee is also investigating the high rate of injuries, employee turnover, and productivity quotas at Amazon. While these investigations have shed light on the working conditions in Amazon’s warehouses, it remains challenging for regulators to bring about substantial changes.
