Share

Working conditions at Tesla's California factory are being scrutinised.

A self-claimed data geek and apparently a Tesla fan moved by the disclosure by company's CEO Elon Musk that he sleeps at the floor of his factory to ramp up Tesla Model 3's production, has started a GoFundMe campaign. A spokesperson for the group would not specify exactly what triggered the action, only that it "takes seriously reports of workplace hazards and allegations of employers' under reporting recordable work-related injuries and illnesses". This inhalation injury was allegedly not added to the official injury logs at Tesla.

Late on Tuesday, California's Division of Occupational Safety and Health, known as CAL/OSHA, opened its inspection and investigations can be triggered by a number of reasons, including internal complaints from employees. Other injuries like sprains and repetitive strain injury from building the cars were also allegedly not logged.

Tesla said the Californian safety agency is required to investigate any claims that are made, "regardless of whether they have merit or are baseless (as we believe these are) and we always provide our full co-operation".

"We have never in the entire history of our company received a violation for inaccurate or incomplete injury record-keeping", said Tesla, adding that its injury rate at the Freemont factory was lower than when Toyota Motor Corp and General Motors owned it.

Musk wrote an email to his staff suggesting measures for precision, profit and productivity, automotive news website Electrek reported.

The development came a day after Musk said that the company would now build Model 3 sedan round the clock until the end of June to produce 6,000 cars per week. "Any that fail to meet the Tesla standard of excellence will have their contracts ended on Monday".
