Tesla Worker Suffers Serious Injuries from Factory Robot Attack

    Tesla Worker Suffers Serious Injuries from Factory Robot Attack at Tesla’s cutting-edge factory in Austin, Texas. The incident, leading to a distressing ‘open wound’ on the engineer’s left hand, recently gained public attention through a 2021 injury report formally submitted to Travis County officials and federal regulatory bodies.

    This regrettable occurrence transpired while the engineer was engrossed in programming software tasked with overseeing robots for precisely cutting car parts from freshly cast aluminum components. It serves as a vivid reminder of the challenges often associated with the automated manufacturing processes implemented by Tesla and similar companies.

    According to eyewitness accounts from the previous month, the robot immobilized the engineer, driving its metal claws into his back and arm, leaving a gruesome trail of blood on the floor. The engineer was left nursing a painful “open wound” on his left hand.

    Quick thinking from a colleague played a pivotal role in the engineer’s rescue, as they promptly activated the emergency stop button, liberating the engineer from the robot’s grip. Subsequently, the engineer reportedly tumbled a few feet down a chute originally designed for collecting scrap aluminum.

    Fortunately, the sustained injuries were not severe enough to necessitate the employee taking time off from work.

    Tesla now faces intensified scrutiny regarding its approach to workplace safety protocols and accident reporting. Disturbing statistics have emerged from the Giga Texas plant, indicating a significantly higher rate of injuries compared to industry standards. Specifically, in cases involving severe on-the-job injuries, a notable contrast is evident: at the Tesla Giga Texas plant, one worker suffered an injury for every 26 employees, in contrast to one in 38 workers at other major U.S. auto manufacturing facilities.
