The worker has not been identified and no further details are available. OSHA is investigating the incident and could take up to 6 months to complete their investigation.
Amazon has been criticized heavily for working conditions both for drivers and warehouse personnel.
Dying on the Amazon warehouse floor is becoming a trend for Amazon.— Isaac (@IsaacOfTheWeb) July 20, 2022
“Amazon’s negligence towards their employees has taken another unnecessary toll. The worker should be alive today. Amazon should not be given condolences and counseling, they should be taking actions towards preventing injuries like this," Nayeli, a former Amazon worker, said. https://t.co/UoONhCNlOI— Make the Road New Jersey 🦋 (@MaketheRoadNJ) July 21, 2022
