In order to achieve advancement of Inspection & Certification (I&C) of vehicles and increased safety on roads, the
Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) has incorporated an independent body
Society for Automotive Fitness & Environment (SAFE).
With membership from industry, Government, Testing Agencies and NGOs, SAFE will work to generate awareness among the various stakeholders regarding Inspection & Certification of in-use vehicles which would lead to safer vehicles and cleaner environment.
SAFE organizes Inspection clinics for in-use vehicles and training workshops for pollution checking technicians in various parts of the country. These programmes are aimed to create awareness on importance of regular maintenance amongst vehicle owners. It is one of the most effective way to control emission levels from vehicles in the country. In addition SAFE organizes seminars with State Governments and other stakeholders.
SAFE has also undertaken several initiatives on Road Safety education of students, drivers and public at large. Through Road Safety Awareness Programmes, SAFE apprised all the communities on traffic rules and also tried to inculcate correct and responsible attitude towards fellow road users.
SAFE hopes to be a catalyst in the automobile industry’s endeavour to fulfill its commitment towards a cleaner and a safer environment and will continue to support and enhance the industry’s role as a responsible corporate citizen in the country.
