Tesla CEO Elon Musk is set to go to ‘war’ with California

Not that Elon Musk is ever out of news but since the
coronavirus pandemic spread across the world, the
Tesla CEO has been in it for largely the wrong reasons. It has been clear that the lockdown situation hasn’t gone down too well with Musk and Tesla’s operations. If a new blog post by Tesla is to go by then Musk is set to go to ‘war’ with the state of California.
. . The blog post makes a case for how Tesla is taking all the necessary step to resume operations at its factory in Fremont but hasn’t got the green light from the authorities. “The County’s position left us no choice but to take legal action to ensure that Tesla and its employees can get back to work. We filed a lawsuit on May 9 asking the court to invalidate the County Orders, to the extent the County claims they prevent Tesla from resuming operations,” stated the blog post.
. The blog post also cited the example of how its factory in Shanghai had been working. “Our restart plan is the result of months of careful planning and preparation. It was modeled after the comprehensive return to work plan we established at our Shanghai Gigafactory, which has seen smooth and healthy operations for the last three months,” noted the blog post.
. Tesla also listed out measures it is taking to restart its operations. These include detailed health and safety restart plan with checklist and photos; employee health and safety guidelines; temperature screening protocol plus a commitment to add temperature screening when we resume long-distance shuttle routes among others.
. . “We are taking the time we need to get our personnel properly trained before they begin work and all employees must complete an online video training before returning to work at any Tesla facility. We have a thorough return-to-work plan for all locations. A cross-functional response team, including an in-house physician, has been working daily to establish health and safety guidelines based on location- and job-specific risk assessments, and we are continuously reviewing our processes to ensure they work for our employees in this new environment,” Tesla further added in the blog post.
