Amazon and Tesla Motors declared Extremely Hazardous Workplaces in the USA

A report came out recently regarding the top twelve workplaces that were dangerous for employees in the US. Surprisingly, Amazon and Tesla Motors made it on this list. It is a common occurrence at both workplaces for workers to die due to health hazards that could have been prevented.

Many times, workers and technicians don’t make it home due to the injuries or fatal consequences of work-related hassles. The company bosses and administration go scot-free while the workers face tragedy after tragedy. It is very sad to see the preventable go unprevented.

Termed the Dirty Dozen 2018, the report got its information from efforts made by health and safety activists. About seven workers have lost their lives at Amazon since the year 2013. This is the ultimate form of negligence shown by Jeff Bezos who happens to be the richest man in the world right now.

Tesla Motors has been trying to hide some of the injuries that have been incurred by its workers in recent times. Elon Musk ought to show more empathy.

Work-related accidents have gone up by 31% at Tesla. Unionization of workers at both firms needs to ramp up the action so as to fight back against such injustice and occupational cruelty.

Update: Amazon has sent use the following statement regarding the COSH report:

Amazon has created over 130,000 jobs in the last year alone and now employees over 560,000 people around the world. Ensuring the safety of these associates is our number one priority. Operational meetings, new hire orientation, process training and new process development begin with safety and have safety metrics and audits integrated within each program.

We expect our leadership to continually improve the safety results of their operations by reducing physical risk through the design of processes, equipment and work areas, applying high standards of safety performance each day, improving capabilities through training and coaching using rigorous management reporting systems to track and audit their progress.

We have also launched the Safety Leadership Index across our US operations where every associate is surveyed through our Connections Program answering a series of questions each month to measure the perception of safety in their facility. Each of these safety programs and measures apply to everyone working in our facilities — full time, part time, seasonal, and temporary. While any serious incident is one too many, we learn and improve our programs working to prevent future incidents. We are proud of safety record and thousands of Amazonians work hard every day innovating ways to make it even better.
