Life’s ups & downs happen to all of us. So, chances are someone you know might be struggling.  When we genuinely ask, ‘are you OK?’ & are prepared to talk to them about how they’re feeling & what’s going on in their life we can help someone feel connected & supported, long before they’re in crisis.

While Rail R U OK? Day falls on 18 April 2024, we want to inspire & empower the rail sector to create a safe, supportive R U OK? Culture & encourage workmates to look out for one another every day of the year. We recently caught up with representatives from across the industry about the challenges rail workers face, why they participate in Rail R U OK? and how it has made a difference to their workplace culture – read more here.
