Webinar: 20 April 2021, 4pm to 5pm

One year on from the successful launch of Resilience First’s guide on Emotional Resilience – Preparing for and Recovering from Crisis, we are pleased to present a more focused wellbeing webinar aimed at the rail sector, in partnership with the Railway Industry Association.

The stresses and strains of modern life can affect many of us and the Covid-19 pandemic has served to enhance further these pressures on our daily lives and routines. 

The rail sector is a notorious environment where expressions of vulnerability are avoided. However, this sector is exposed to major incidents which can affect the mental wellbeing of individuals for years or lifetimes, and impact on organisations and communities for generations.

Businesses can do a great deal to help employees and communities prepare for and recover from major trauma and thereby enjoy many benefits by not just reducing the immediate impact on people and families should an incident arise but also helping staff to return to work with confidence and motivation.

Through this session we look forward to hearing steps that key organisations have championed to improve the wellbeing and working environment of their staff and contractors.
