Camera Branch: Anonymous COVID-19 Safety Reporting
You can use this form to let the Camera Branch know if you've been asked to work in a way that you believe to be unsafe in relation to Covid-19. You do not have to be a Bectu member.

Members who want an immediate response from a union official should contact Bectu directly on covid19@bectu.org.uk or call 020 7346 0900 during office hours. If you use the email option you can cc info@camerabranch.org.uk to keep the branch in the loop.

There is an option at the bottom of this form to ask for a Bectu official to follow up your report. If you don't select this option, this form remains anonymous & any information you put into it will be used for monitoring purposes only - Bectu will not contact a production unless a member specifically asks an official to do so. Please bear in mind that this form is monitored by volunteer Camera Branch reps, so if it's urgent, the quickest way is to go direct to the union.

You can also read the government guidance for reporting of coronavirus incidents in the workplace under RIDDOR (The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013) here: https://www.hse.gov.uk/news/riddor-reporting-coronavirus.htm# . Your employer is obliged to report a ‘dangerous occurrence’ if an unintended incident at work has led to someone’s possible or actual exposure to coronavirus, and must also report any actual cases or deaths that happen as a result.

Unless you choose to add contact details to get a response, this form is anonymous. Information entered into it is covered by Bectu's privacy policy which you can see here: bectu.org.uk/privacy/
