The specialist risk group has replaced the Business Engagement and Measurement Group, the Health Cultures Group, the Mental Wellbeing Group, and the Musculoskeletal Disorders Group as part of the restructure of the Rail Wellbeing Alliance’s subgroups.


HWAG is required to:

  • help rail organisations understand and address organisational risks to the health and wellbeing of employees.
  • encourage the development of a wellbeing culture that focuses on preventative health and drives proactive, positive health behaviours at all levels.
  • engage business leaders through quantifying the impact of health on UK rail, improving investment decisions in health and wellbeing at company and industry level.
  • use relevant data to identify and prioritise programmes that address the most critical health and wellbeing challenges and risks.
  • support an industry-wide change in the prevention and management of health and wellbeing. 

The following areas are not within the group’s scope: occupational hygiene risks, legal compliance not related to stress, and fitness for work. These areas will be covered by the Occupational Health & Hygiene Advisory Group.


The group has members representing these industry stakeholders:

  • infrastructure managers and owners
  • passenger train operators
  • suppliers
  • Transport for London 
  • RSSB.

Chair of committee: Magdalena Wronska, Transport for London

RSSB main representative: Joana Faustino
