Amazon's Worldwide (WW) Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) organization is changing the way we think about our workplace, so that we can keep our associates healthy and safe, while also protecting the environment. We have just started scratching the surface in terms of possibilities, and are exploring everything from using devices to monitor and improve health, to linking together data from our buildings and devices to predict safety-related events. Our team is reinventing the way Amazon anticipates, assesses, and manages workplace hazards and risks. So, if creating industry-first products and solutions interests you, then this might be the role for you.
The EHS Data Scientist role will work closely with our global EHS Strategy team to perform multi-layered research and analysis to build deep understanding of the space, and to enhance processes with data-based frameworks that predict workplace risks. Broadly, this person will work with our teams to optimize our global environment, health and safety processes in several ways – from anticipating hazards that could impact people or the environment, to testing hypotheses on specific problems that have been notoriously difficult to solve, and in building machine learning into automation to continuously optimize throughput.
