Amazon Launches WorkingWell for Employees

Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) has reported the launch of WorkingWell, a program to provide employees with mental and physical activities, exercises and healthy eating support that is proven to help them recharge and reenergize and reduce the risk of injury.  The company has promised to invest over USD 300 Million into safety projects in 2021 and its goal is to be the most safe place on Earth to work.  Amazon’s top priority has been the health and safety of its employees.  “Amazon takes our safety very seriously, and my managers have made it clear to me it’s more important than anything, even productivity and quality,” said Jeffrey Ku, operations employee at an Amazon fulfillment center in Aurora, CO. “WorkingWell is an extension of that—it makes sure we’re taking care of our minds and bodies. It encourages us to make positive changes to how we work, and since I started watching the program’s health and safety videos, I’ve incorporated a stretching routine into my day.”

“Amazon has identified some innovative technologies and approaches to address employee well-being and the implementation of training and wellness programs in their facilities,” says Jennifer McNelly, American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) CEO. “The occupational safety and health community thrives on sharing innovations, best practices and lessons learned. We look forward to Amazon continuing to share ideas and information about these new methods and approaches to improve workplace safety in the United States and globally.”
