Safety technology and tools
We committed $300 million to safety projects, such as vehicle safety controls and engineered ergonomic solutions.

We also incurred more than $15 billion in costs to help keep our employees safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • “I’ve been a first air responder in Rivers Pointe Fire District for 29 years—since I was a teenager—and have always enjoyed helping others. The skills I have acquired fit perfectly into helping Amazon’s Associates. In the current climate, as first aid responders and employees, we need to continue to be adaptable and assist others, performing tasks that others can’t.”
