Cal/OSHA Reportedly Investigating Tesla Over Factory Safety

Cal/OSHA Reportedly Investigating Tesla Over Factory Safety

Tesla, an American Electric vehicle manufacturer, temporarily stopped its Model 3 production at its Fremont assembly plant in California to resolve the delay issues and claims that the suspension will not impact the current production issue.

California's Division of Occupational Safety and Health said that it has opened an investigation into Tesla over a report about worker protections at the company's lone auto plant in Fremont, California. Whatever the actual story, CalOSHA told Bloomberg that it takes workplace hazards and allegations of underreported work-related injuries seriously, and that is why it is investigating.

As per laws in California, employers are required to maintain what are called Log 300 records of injuries and illnesses.

CEO Elon Musk's personal preferences were invoked as reason not to address potential hazards.

The probe comes a matter of days after a damning report on injuries at Tesla was published by the Centre for Investigative Reporting.

No details about the investigation were disclosed. Cal/OSHA's regulations define a serious injury or illness as one that requires employee hospitalization for more than 24 hours for other than medical observation, or in which a part of the body is lost or permanent disfigurement occurs. "However, there should be absolutely no question that we care deeply about the well-being of our employees and that we try our absolute hardest to do the right thing and to fail less often".

Cal/OSHA responded to these complaints by opening an investigation.

However, the agency has declined to comment on what triggered its latest probe, which could take as long as six months to complete.

According to the report, Tesla still projecting to reach the target of 5,000 Model 3s per week by the end of the first half of 2018.

A report at Reveal made the initial claims, and Tesla has repudiated the report itself, saying that it has never intentionally misrepresented its safety record.
