RSSB: Time for a health check

This article looks at the efforts by the rail industry in the UK to address workforce health and wellbeing. The industry may be motivated by the fact that poor health and wellbeing among the workforce leads to unnecessary costs; impaired worker absenteeism costs industry overall. The author details some of issues being faced by the rail sector and the associated risks and costs. Highlighted is a new program managed by Railway Safety and Standards Board (RSSB) on behalf of Network Rail, train and freight operators, rolling stock leasing companies, infrastructure companies, suppliers and supported by the Office of Rail Regulation. This program seeks to increase business performance through a menu of products and initiatives that RSSB members can call upon as required.
