As a member of the Ergonomics shared services team, this role focuses on setting the right conditions of work – from energy product deployment and installation, to construction self-perform – such that all Tesla employees are able to achieve and sustain healthy high performance. What does this mean? It means this individual is not content with just eliminating the risk of injury but goes further to help ensure healthy, high human performance is “designed-in” to the human-work system.
The Ergonomist is expected to properly apply semi-quantitative and advanced risk assessment tools with a high degree of proficiency, demonstrate a clear understanding of function allocation (in the context of job design), and have a polished comfort in both facilitating gemba problem-solving and building ergonomics competency in others. In addition, this individual will be expected to communicate recommendations in a bright and brief way to all levels in the company. This position requires travel (at least 40-50% of time); often day trips to installation sites. This position works independently and partners with installer, laborer’s, engineering, management, and 3rd parties to drive solutions.
The ideal candidate directly supports the energy product deployment and construction self-perform teams and is expected to assess employee tasks performed in the field. This includes solar tile roofing, PV, Powerwall, megapack installations and construction projects like foundations, carpentry, painting, wire routing, etc. Assessments will drive activity in product design, process, tooling, material handling, and training.
