Another Amazon.com employee has died in a workplace accident at the Carlisle distribution center. It is the second death in Carlisle since 2017 and one of many across the nation. These type of tragic accidents has led to a Federal investigation of Amazon.com by Federal prosecutors and OSHA.
Through the years of representing injured workers across Pennsylvania and Maryland, these are by far the most heartbreaking for me. This employee was just 22 years old. He had worked at Amazon.com’s Carlisle distribution center since 2019.
Over the years, I have represented many injured workers from Amazon. I hope this investigation leads to transparency, changes in safety protocols, enhances training programs, and accountability. People go to work everyday to make a living for themselves, support their families, and build a life for their families. They do not expect to got to work and get hurt or even die as a result of a work-related accident. Over the course of years of representing injured workers, I have seen many, many injuries that are simply avoidable with common sense safety protocols and a solid training program. Employers need to understand that their most valuable asset is their employees. They should treat them with dignity and ensure safe practices. Safety and training should be the number one priority of any employer. Company profit is great. That is why companies are in business. BUT, they can’t post profits and generate revenues without their workforce. Work injuries can be devastating physically, emotionally, mentally, and financially. The very least expectation an employee should expect is to work hard, do a good job, but be in a safe environment and have proper and appropriate training.
