In 2015, Tesla's TRIR was 8.8.100 workers, which was 31% higher than the industry average of 6.7 that year."
In 2015, Tesla had a DART rate of 7.9 injuries per 100 workers, which was 103% higher than the industry average of 3.9 that year."
"For 2016, Worksafe did compile Tesla's TRIR (8.1) and DART (7.3), however, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics has yet to release industry-wide averages for last year."
So the stats lag by a couple years. This is as good as we're gonna get.
That alone tells you a lot about the company leadership's priorities. They don't fix safety problems if someone's not forcing them to.
barely anything of substance that Tesla is actually DOING, at all, as a company to address their crap safety record.
Do nothing. Hire someone to apologize for you. While you do nothing.
Companies like that aren't just a risk to their workers, they're a liability risk to me as a consultant. Nope. Bye.
Tesla's current "safety fix" is textbook SiV bullshit.
The info we have on Tesla's workplace accidents comes from the OSHA Form 300. It's a pretty basic log on what happened, when, to whom, etc.
This means they they basically told employers "go ahead and just stop keeping records of your industrial accidents, we don't care."
• How many accidents companies like Tesla are actually having, and
• How that compares with industrial averages
This one decision effectively swept problem companies under the rug.
