Rail R U OK? Day

The next Rail R U OK? Day will be on 12 April 2018. The industry-wide event focuses on engaging rail staff in conversations about their emotional status by prompting them to answer one simple question: Are you ok?

While we cannot eliminate depression or anxiety in one day, it is our hope that this project takes us a step forward in addressing stigma surrounding emotional and mental trauma that might manifest as a result of exposure to incidents on the rail.

By making every day a Rail R U OK? Day we can create an environment of support and encouragement so that asking if one is “OK” becomes standard industry practice.

TrackSAFE and R U OK? developed a range of tools to help participating organisations launch their very own Rail R U OK? Day events.

The Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP Prime Minister of Australia sent the rail industry a message of support for Rail R U OK?Day 2017. To access statement please click here.
