Workplace Safety

The health and safety of employees is Amazon’s number one priority, and we’ve taken many proactive measures to keep our employees safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. In Australia we have provided more than half a million masks and 3,100 litres of sanitiser, and we’re offering paid time off for anyone who is diagnosed with the virus or placed in quarantine.
