Don’t feel safe on site?

Help your union collect health and safety data by using Bectu’s new live events reporting form. This information will help us better understand the extent of the problem, and the types of health and safety issues members face. This will help us develop campaigns, produce relevant resources, and inform our conversations with employers to make working in live events sites safer for everyone.

Please remember this form is not a substitute for accident/incident reporting. You should still report the matter to your employer, engager, client and/or HSE or the local council. If you have any urgent concerns or queries, please call Bectu’s head office on 0300 600 1878.
