Australia: TrackSAFE planning for Rail R U OK? Day

11 Dec

imagegen.ashxTrackSAFE is busy planning for Rail R U OK? Day are in the final stages of development. A high level industry of engagement is anticipated as the event will be an internal campaign focused on encouraging rail staff to engage each other in meaningful conversations.

Two engagement sessions are planned to be held in Melbourne and Sydney in early February 2015. Subsequent engagement sessions will be held as requested and the engagement material will be made available online for download. TrackSAFE is developing a toolkit for dissemination at these sessions that will include tips for starting a conversation as well as ideas for events that participating organisations can execute at their workplace on Rail R U OK? Day.

Additionally, TrackSAFE has added the new initiative under the Current Projects section of the website to allow people to register their interest in participating in the event. TrackSAFE will use those registrants as points of contact when sharing information leading up to the event.

R U OK? is a not-for-profit organisation founded by Gavin Larkin in 2009, whose vision is a world where we’re all connected and are protected from suicide. Accordingly, our mission is to encourage and equip everyone to regularly and meaningfully ask “are you ok?”

We know that suicide prevention is an enormously complex and sensitive challenge the world over. But we also know that some of the world’s smartest people have been working tirelessly and developed credible theories that suggest there’s power in that simplest of questions – “Are you ok?”
