The Rail Safety and Standards Board (RSSB) is the independent safety, standards and research body for Great Britain’s rail network. It helps to make working in the railway industry safer, more efficient, and more sustainable. 

The RSSB’s Railway Mental Health Charter is a framework to help promote, manage and support workforce mental wellbeing. The charter responds to industry needs and provides targeted actions and resources for improving mental health.

Andy Battye, health and safety director for VolkerFitzpatrick comments: “I’m really excited to share that we’ve signed the Railway Mental Health Charter. Our employees know that we actively support mental health. Not just once a year for a campaign, but consistently and with resources. By signing this charter, we’re looking to evolve our services, and make sure that any areas that need improvements, will get them, both today and in the future.”
