OSHA has cited six Amazon warehouses for failing to properly record injuries and illnesses that occurred at their facilities. According to OSHA, the warehouses, which are located in five states, were cited for 14 violations related to recordkeeping that could result in $29,008 in fines. The citations included "not recording injuries and illnesses within the required time, and not providing OSHA with timely injury and illness records."

Assistant Secretary for OSHA Doug Parker explained why proper recordkeeping is so important. "Our concern is that nothing will be done to keep an injury from recurring if it isn't even recorded in the logbook which – in a company the size of Amazon – could have significant consequences for a large number of workers."
