Description:
Elevator Pitch:
This role will start between January 2022 and September 2022. This is a full-time position. Amazon is looking for high-potential leaders, who are ready to own their impact in Amazon Operations as a workplace health and safety specialist (WHSS). As a WHSS, you will have an opportunity to promote a positive safety culture while complying with Amazon safety standards. The WHSS coordinates and implements all aspects of Amazon's Global Safety Program. If you are excited to coach associates and conduct trainings on workplace safety, apply to join our team in Amazon Operations as a WHSS! Amazon provides extensive training and development for entry level WHSS to learn to become exceptional safety leaders.

Day in the life:
As a WHSS, you will maintain accurate daily, weekly, and monthly metrics to report to onsite management teams. You will also conduct risk assessments related to jobs performed (Job Hazard Analysis) and new equipment introductions for associates. In addition, the WHSS leads recommending appropriate risk mitigation measures to management, including ergonomics, in Amazon's Fulfillment Centers.

What is fulfillment you ask? Fulfillment is how we refer to completing or fulfilling a customer's Amazon.com order and the acts of picking, packing, shipping and delivering their order to meet or exceed their expectations! Our Operation's workflow can be broken three major lanes: first mile - where the product is housed and ready for your order; second mile - where your order is hauled to your area; and last mile - when the product is delivered to your door. Please note that all lanes have slight building variations, but one thing is constant, our vision and dedication to the customer.

Locations and Placement:
• The position is not a corporate role and will be located in a fulfillment center, sort center, delivery station, or other warehouse environment
• Must be willing to relocate at time of hire (position location is most heavily weighted on business need but will also take into account personal location preference)

Key Responsibilities:
• Identify and inform management of compliance issues, safety risks, and improvement opportunities through conducting daily, weekly, and monthly audits
• Facilitate incident investigation processes
• Maintain required paperwork to comply with Amazon and OSHA regulations
• Enter Safety Incident Information in internal database in a timely manner
• Participate in process improvement activities and manage actions to completion
• Train and assist others (area managers, safety team members, etc.) to complete their safety tasks (audits, follow safety rules, etc.)
• Perform specific safety training as required by the Safety Manager
• May have additional oversight for fire prevention, hazardous waste management, or other safety related activities depending on the business unit and location

Job Elements:
Must be able to perform the following tasks, with or without reasonable accommodation:
• Stand/walk for up to 10-12 hours
• Walk in/and around the warehouse with great frequency; many facilities are over a quarter mile in length
• Access all areas of building (ascending and descending ladders, stairs, and gangways safely and without limitation)
• Regularly bend, lift, stretch and reach both below the waist and above the head
• Lift and move items up to 49 pounds
• Willing and able to work any permanent shift that may include overnights, weekends, holidays and overtime
