Registrations open for Rail Wellbeing Live 2023

The rail industry’s annual wellbeing event, Rail Wellbeing Live takes place on 7-9 November, with registration now open.

Headlining this year’s online event are television personality and campaigner Davina McCall, Olympic rower Sir Steve Redgrave and physician and mental health ambassador Dr Alex George.

Other speakers include experts in mental health, trauma and sleep. This year, evening sessions will take place aimed at night shift workers, and there will be more than 40 sessions covering the spectrum of physical and mental wellbeing.

Rail Wellbeing Live steering board chair and GWR and Network Rail Wales and Western People and Transformation Director Ruth Busby said: ‘“I’m so proud and excited to be a part of Rail Wellbeing Live 2023. Events like this give us all the opportunity to take a proactive approach to health and wellbeing.

‘All too often, we put ourselves to the bottom of the pile and forget to look after ourselves. Taking part in one or more of these fantastic sessions, will give you the tools to make a positive change – whether that be mentally, physically, emotionally or financially.

‘I’d especially like to ask line managers to encourage their team to join a RWL session. Even if you can’t join live, sessions are available afterwards so please register and watch at a time that is convenient.

‘It doesn’t matter where you are in the rail industry, we all have similar challenges. I very much look forward to everyone coming together to improve wellbeing as one, big, railway family.’

Rail Wellbeing Live is funded and supported by organisations across the rail industry - Alstom, Angel Trains, Arriva, Atkins, BAM Nuttall, Eversholt Rail, FirstGroup, GTR, Hitachi Rail, Keltbray, Keolis, KPMG, LNER, Network Rail, Octavius, ORR, RSSB, Siemens and West Midlands Railway.
