Mental Health in the Rail Freight Industry

Mental Health in the Rail Freight Industry



RSSB’s recent cross-industry mental health survey revealed some hard hitting statistics, with anxiety amongst railway industry employees 1.5 times the national rate, and over twice the rate of PTSD.

Almost 40% of all respondents for the freight sector reported a mental health issue which they felt was a direct result of work, yet the majority of respondents (61%) said they would go to work as usual if they were suffering psychological issues such as stress, depression or anxiety, rather than take time off.

Julia Keleher from RSSB will talk through what was learnt about the mental health of freight employees and share some tips for taking care of your own mental health and that of your colleagues.

Gemma Platt from GB Railfreight and Stephanie Kendrick from Aggregate Industries will discuss how their companies are seeking to protect and promote better mental health among employees.
