Amazon’s Warehouse Wearables Promote Worker Safety
Amazon is testing a wearable device that will alert warehouse workers when they are violating social
distancing rules. In addition, Amazon is experimenting with cameras equipped with social distancing
software to improve safety.
The data collected from these technologies will help with contact tracing if the need arises. Amazon has
already made some workers responsible for monitoring social distancing for warehouses nationwide in
an effort to minimize virus spread.
