While two of the robots were turned off, the third was unintentionally left running. It entangled the worker in its claws as it performed its routine movements.
The Information claims that in 2022, nearly one in twenty-one employees at Tesla‘s Giga Texas factory suffered an injury at work, compared to the industry average of one in thirty.
Since 2021, when Tesla CEO Elon Musk declared he was moving the company’s headquarters from California, the Texas location has served as the company’s global headquarters.
Musk relocated to Texas in 2020, and his rocket company, SpaceX, also has a launch site at the southernmost point of the state.
