At Queensland Rail the health and wellbeing of our employees is a priority. A wide range of free services are available to support and enhance employee’s physical, emotional and financial wellbeing. These services include:

Health assessments for rail safety workers

24/7 on call support for emergencies and critical incidents.

Employee Assistance Program

Converge is the Employee Assistance provider for Queensland Rail employees, offering a range of 24/7 online tools and information to support employees and their immediate families in achieving the best possible personal and work life outcomes.

Free and Confidential Counselling

To tackle life’s challenges, or simply as part of maintaining strong mental wellness, employees can access 6 one-hour confidential counselling sessions per year, either face-to-face, over the phone, via video, online or via live chat.

Fitness Passport

Fitness Passport is a discounted workplace health and fitness program, giving you and your family unparalleled access to a wide range of gyms and pools throughout the state, all at the fraction of the cost of a regular gym membership. Queensland Rail provides you with exclusive access to a significantly discounted fitness membership, tailored to the gyms and pools you and your colleagues want to use. Our program has access to more than 380 gyms and pools across Queensland.

Annual Flu Vaccination

Queensland Rail employees can combat flu season with a free flu vaccination either on-site or by using a Vaccination Voucher if unable to attend an on-site location.

rt health

rt health is the health insurer that’s been looking after the Australians who keep Australia moving for more than 130 years. Their vision is to support rail, transport and energy workers so you never have to worry about managing your health concerns alone. Queensland Rail employees receive one month free health insurance when they join on Hospital and Extras, and a waiver of all 2 and 3 month extras waiting periods for Extras only.

Financial Wellness

At Queensland Rail, we understand that financial stress can be detrimental to the mental and physical health of our people. We partner with QSuper, MOVE Bank and Converge to offer a wide range of information, tools and support.
