PAPod 171 - TESLA Safety and Lagging Indicators - Let’s Hear From Laurie Shelby - Global VP for Health and Safety

28Apr

TESLA has been getting a lot of press lately about thier safety numbers - a lot of press.  To the untrained person, those lagging numbers sound damming and inflamitory.  Every injury is bad, but every event has its own context and conditions.  Looking backwords in order to understand the forward motion is never correct. 

That leads us to this episode of the pod.  Laurie Shelby is the VP for Gobal Safety for all of TESLA'S 40,000 Associates and she has a story to tell about the path forward for one of the world's most famous start up orgniaztions.

Safety Music Moment - John Prine and Safety Joe

18Apr

 

There just aren't a lot of songs about safety people.  In fact I only know of one.  

I love John Prine.   I mean it.   I love him so much.  Mr. Prine has gotten me through most of my life - his songs are simple, his lyrics are amazing.   He's a gem of a song writter and performer.
