Tesla Factory Tour

Tesla was founded in 2003 by a group of engineers who wanted to prove that people didn’t need to compromise to drive electric – that electric vehicles can be better, quicker and more fun to drive than gasoline cars. Today, Tesla builds not only all-electric vehicles but also infinitely scalable clean energy generation and storage products. Tesla believes the faster the world stops relying on fossil fuels and moves towards a zero-emission future, the better.

Flash Report: Crawford Joins Cal/OSHA Standards Board

The Governor has made three appointments to the Cal/OSHA Standards Board.

Filling a long-time vacancy on the Cal/OSHA Standard Board, Governor Gavin Newsom named construction safety professional Kathleen “Kate” Crawford to the position.  The seat has been vacant since 2018.

Crawford fills the open seat on the seven-member board and is the second management representative.

Director of safety and health at Hensel Phelps Construction since 2015, Crawford is a familiar face in the Cal/OSHA community. She has been an active participant in many rulemaking projects. Previously, she was director of safety and regulatory affairs at Associated General Contractors of California; safety director at Turner Construction; and safety manager at SKANSKA USA Building.

She also is a member of the American Society of Safety Professionals and on the advisory council for Central Washington University’s safety degree program.

Reappointed are two members: Labor member David Harrison, financial secretary for Operating Engineers Local 3; and occupational safety member Laura Stock, director of UC Berkeley’s Labor Occupational Health Program.

The Standards Board is unpaid and does not require Senate confirmation. The three appointments were announced late Wednesday the 30th of December.
