Rail R U OK?

No qualifications needed

SAVE THE DATE: 18 April 2024

Our Rail R U OK? theme ‘No qualifications needed’ empowers workers in the rail industry to have the confidence to ask “are you OK?”, to know what to say when a workmate says they’re not OK, and provide guidance on how to keep the conversation on track.

You don’t have to be an expert when someone says they’re not OK.

By knowing what to say you can help a workmate feel supported and access help long before they’re in crisis, which can make a positive difference in their life.

Rail R U OK? activities are an opportunity to show workmates that they can make a real difference to someone who’s having a tough time by having a meaningful conversation.

To ensure you’re kept up to date, register your event.

RESOURCES AVAILABLE BELOW & take a moment to read our Conversations with Champions blog and videos below.


Our FREE Rail R U OK? resources includes tips and ideas for sharing the message in your workplace throughout the year.

The Digital Toolkit is just one of the many resources offered to participating rail organisations to support you in running
successful and impactful Rail R U OK? events.

The Conversation Guide has great tips to help ask the important question, R U OK? + what to do if someone is in fact not ok. 

Resources include a suite of poster options, an editable poster for co-branding, web banners, social media tiles, virtual backgrounds + more!
