    Healthy Cultures Group

    The Healthy Cultures Group supports the Rail Wellbeing Alliance in providing evidence-based good practice and guidance to the railway industry for health and wellbeing promotion. These are based on behavioural insights that ensure employees are equipped with the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to manage their health, and that the rail environment and culture supports workplace wellbeing.

    Scope

    The purpose of the Healthy Cultures Group is to:

    • Develop lifestyle and environmental interventions that address long-term risks to the health and wellbeing of rail employees. 
    • Support the development of a wellbeing culture that focuses on preventative health and drives proactive, positive health behaviours at all levels.
    • Drive the adoption of good practice in health promotion and healthy behaviours across the UK rail industry. 
    • Foster cross industry collaboration to ensure the best use of rail industry wellbeing resources and expertise.

    Message from the chair

    The Healthy Cultures group acts as a catalyst for change, inspiring organisations to adopt proactive preventative health practices and behaviours, promoting healthy decision making at all levels. We provide evidence-based good practice and guidance to the railway industry to support the management of health risk areas described in the industry’s safety strategy ‘Leading Health and Safety on Britain’s Railway’.
