With personal safety an overriding priority, General Motors India has provided all its women employees a safety device called ‘SAFER’ to protect themselves in an emergency situation. This is a part of the company’s commitment towards personal safety. The complimentary SAFER device was handed over to all women employees across GM India locations including Talegaon, Halol, Gurugram and Bengaluru last week and training sessions were also organized to understand its usage. The device has been developed by a smart jewelry startup Leaf Wearable.


The SAFER device helps in tracking the location of an employee that can be tracked through a smartphone application. The device can be worn as a pendant which has an in-built panic button that’s synced with the user’s phone. To use the device the user has to press the pendant that in turn triggers an alarm to registered connections and alert their loved ones about their location, assisted through their smartphone. The SAFER by Leaf application can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

Speaking on the initiative, Pritpal Kular, Vice President, Human Resources, General Motors India expressed that personal safety has become an overriding priority for all companies and through this initiative, GM India has endeavored to ensure safety for their women employees. The SAFER device will keep women employees connected with their loved ones at all times and add to their sense of safety.
