"Analysis of Tesla Injury Rates: 2014 to 2017"

Worksafe's investigation of injury and illness rates at Telsa Motors was prompted by worker concerns about potential safety hazards at the company’s flagship vehicle plant in Fremont, California.

In April 2017, workers first requested copies of the OSHA Form 300, the log of work-related injuries and illnesses that companies are required by law to make available to their employees. Worksafe analyzed these logs and evaluated how their plant compared to other auto manufacturing facilities.


"Dying at Work in California: The Hidden Stories Behind the Numbers"
