Helping Rail Companies choose their Occupational Health Service Wisely

Engaging good workplace health programmes is in everyone’s interests. It can protect employees from harm, enhance wellbeing and morale, and reduce absence. But it can be challenging to set up. We tackled this by creating a simple guide for rail companies.

​From spotting and monitoring the most common work-related health issues, the different types of provision, how to make a decision, right through to managing a contract – the guide contains a concise overview of the whole process.

Our Health and Wellbeing Specialist, Stephanie Fitzgerald said:“This is a really simple quick-start guide for HR and operational teams to use to prompt the right questions about how to set up or refine workforce health programmes. By following the guide, organisations get a win-win by ensuring both arrangements are efficient and cost-effective, but also crucially that the health and wellbeing of their people is properly looked after.”
