As a result of Reveal reporter Will Evans’ investigation into injuries at Amazon warehouses across the country last year, sources shared a trove of internal records, giving an unprecedented view into the company’s safety record. 

Based on those records, Reveal found that Amazon has misled the public about its safety record, which has been getting worse, with injury rates increasing every year between 2016 and 2019.

In this collaboration with PBS NewsHour, Evans takes a closer look at Amazon’s public claims and private internal documents.
