As part of its commitment to personal safety,
General Motors India has provided all its women employees a safety device
called ‘Safer’ to protect themselves in an emergency situation. Women can push
a button on the ‘Safer’ device to alert their loved ones about their location,
assisted through their smartphone.
A complimentary Safer device
was handed over to all women employees across GM India locations including
Talegaon, Halol, Gurgaon and Bengaluru last week and training sessions were
also organised to understand its usage. The device has been developed by a
smart jewelry startup ‘Leaf Wearable’.
“Personal Safety has become an
overriding priority for all companies and through this initiative, GM India has
endeavoured to ensure safety for our women employees. The Safer device will
keep our women employees connected with their loved ones at all times and add
to their sense of safety,” said Pritpal Kular, Vice President, Human Resources,
General Motors India.
Through the Safer device, the
location of the employee will be tracked through smartphones. Additionally, the device can be worn as a
pendant which has an in-built panic button that’s synced with the user’s phone.
In case of emergency, the pendant has to be pressed which will trigger an alarm
to registered connections who have downloaded the Safer smartphone application.
The ‘Safer by Leaf’ application can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or
Google Play Store.
