Our vision is of a rail industry that consistently achieves best practice in occupational health.

  • Excellence in health risk management;
  • Greater engagement with employees and others;
  • Better efficiency and reduced costs from people suffering work-related ill-health; and
  • Enabling improvements in competency, information, co-ordination and control.
