Topic: Getting back to work


This is an email from Laurie Shelby, Tesla’s vice president for environment, health and safety about returning to work.

Hi everyone –

We have been working hard to ensure your health and safety as we resume and ramp-up operations.

Additional safety measures like health checks prior to entry, required face coverings while onsite at all U.S. locations (and some other sites globally), social distancing practices, the use of protective barriers and PPE are in place. All of this is covered in the Coming to Work safety training video you can watch now or upon return to work if you are furloughed.

The attached Safety Guidelines summarize this training and outline how we’re helping to keep you safe and how you can help too.

It is important to remember: Before coming to work each day, conduct the attached self-health check. It is three questions and if you cannot answer yes, please do not come to work. Contact your supervisor or Human Resources partner. We all must take these requirements seriously. They are an expectation for everyone working. As always, please reach out to me or [Ed: Redacted] with questions and suggestions.

Thank you for doing your part to ensure everyone’s health and safety, Laurie
