Traditionally unreported, suicide on rail is an alarming issue for those involved. It deeply affects wider communities and rail industry staff.
A partnership has developed between Lifeline Australia and TrackSAFE, which represents a strong, ongoing commitment to reduce suicides in the rail environment through collaboration, research and public awareness raising.
Lifeline Australia committed to providing specialist knowledge and supports on suicide prevention as a partner with the TrackSAFE Foundation to pursue this joint objective.
The partnership aims to address suicide on our network in an attempt to reduce the number of incidents and begin to mitigate the trauma caused to the families, communities and our employees.
