Tesla Cutting Corners on Safety

A new report by RevealNews.org says electric vehicle maker Tesla failed to record workers’ serious injuries accurately. Mislabeling and under-counting injuries made Tesla’s safety record look better than it actually was, the report concludes. Sources told Reveal that safety compromises were made to appease CEO Elon Musk’s aesthetic preferences at Tesla’s Fremont, California factory. The company employs thousands of workers in Fremont, where its Model S, Model X and Model 3 cars are made. They said because Musk did not like the color yellow, the factory floor did not have clearly marked pedestrian lanes, and instead had lanes painted different shades of gray, CNBC reported. At Tesla, Reveal found, “Company officials labeled toxic exposures, muscle strains and repetitive stress injuries as personal medical issues or minor accidents requiring only first aid, lowering its official injury count.”
