When should I Speak Up?
BSI takes whistleblowing very seriously and is committed to independently investigate any allegations raised. If you see or suspect any wrong-doing BSI wants to hear about it. You don’t need to have any proof that these things are happening - if you have a reasonable belief, you should report your concerns.
You should use this independent “Speak Up” service if you see or suspect:
- Bribery, fraud, or other criminal offence
- A miscarriage of justice
- A risk to colleague and/or public health and safety
- A risk or actual damage to the environment
- A breach of any other legal or professional obligation
- Discriminatory behaviour
- Someone is covering up wrongdoing
The “Speak Up” service is not for grievances. A grievance is usually a complaint about something that impacts a colleague as an individual, like how they feel they’re being treated at work. Please see the ‘FAQ’ section below for more information.

Your report won’t be traced and Safecall has trained operators to support you
As part of your report please think about:
- Providing clear details about where and when the issue occurred. This should include BSI location (for example, name and address of depot / office), dates and any colleagues involved / aware. This will make our investigations a lot easier.
- You have the opportunity to remain anonymous. While doing so may help you feel more comfortable raising a concern, it may also impact our ability to successfully investigate and resolve the matter. You can also remain partially anonymous, whereby Safecall won’t share your name with BSI. Making yourself available to be contacted may help the investigator to fully understand the issue and take appropriate action.
