Producers’ trade body, Pact, has announced its support for the Call It! App.

The app was founded by three industry freelancers – two producers and a director – and is not-for-profit. Pact will be promoting the app to its 700+ members at a discounted rate.

The app is a simple data collection and signposting tool “which will help producers in their commitment to creating safer, fairer places of work.”

The anonymous Call It! App creates a “psychologically safe space for workers to share their experiences in the workplace.”

The app is set up to show anonymously how workers on a production are being treated, monitor concerns regarding health and safety, safeguarding and working conditions and measure and prevent bullying and harassment on productions or within companies as well as  signposting discreet, confidential mental health services at partner organisations and gives easy access to formal, confidential policies and procedures.

Pact Deputy CEO and Director of Legal and Business Affairs, Max Rumney, said: “Pact Council recently approved the endorsement of the Call It! App, as part of its ongoing work to achieve a safer and fairer working environment for members and their employees. We would encourage all members to consider signing up to the app and taking advantage of the Pact member discount”.

Call It! Says: “Call It! is an effective leadership tool. It forms part of an ongoing, comprehensive commitment to improved safety and fair practices in film and TV. Adding to existing support from Equity, Bectu, DirectorsUK and the Production Guild, among others, Call It! has industry-wide buy-in: positive change comes when we all work together! We welcome Pact’s endorsement and support and can’t wait for members to use the Call It! app.”
