A few days ago, in an Amazon warehouse near Poznań (Poland), one of the workers died of a heart attack during a night shift. Other employees associate this death with hypoxia and heat - the obligation to wear face masks at work.

- People find it harder to breathe in masks and hence - work harder. Employees wear face masks for up to 10 hours a day. They cannot take them off, because they face the consequences - says Maria Malinowska from the Employee Initiative Inicjatywa Pracownicza IP at Amazon in Sady near Poznań.

Two years earlier, the Labor Inspectorate was to carry out research on the energy expenditure of Amazon employees near Poznań. According to trade union reports, some departments came across very large exceedances. - Despite this, Amazon has not reduced standards.

According to Radio Poznań, one of the employees of the magazine said: "Many of us complain about hypoxia. However, we do not take off the masks, because there are threatening reprimands and sanctions. "

Initially, Amazon, despite the virus threat, did not provide employees with masks at all. After detecting COVID-19 infection in the company's warehouse near Łódź, carrying them during work became mandatory.
