Railway Worker

Revised and redeveloped, Railway Worker is an excellent example of a custom manual designed for male and female workers.

One man in five will die before he reaches 65 so how do you keep your health on track.

Developed with the railway industry, Railway Worker is built around our award-winning Man Manual and combines elements of Woman and Beat Stress, Feel Better to create a manual that is perfectly suited to its audience.

The modern rail worker can be seen as much in an office as out on track or in a signal box.

Some work that may have been done by man is now done by machines. However, there is still a lot of heavy manual work involved in railway construction and maintenance. This can take a lot out of the average person.

Maintaining health, eating well and taking exercise is as important to a manager as it is to a track worker or a secretary.

This mini-manual doesn’t pretend to cover everything when it comes to perfect health, but it can make a difference along with common sense and better use of available health services. It’s a no-nonsense guide to making informed choices about your health.

Men's Health Forum man manuals: men’s health made easy.

The Men's Health Forum is a member of the NHS England Information Standard and this new man manual is fully compliant. This means it is fully-referenced, has been peer-reviewed by our team of medics led by Dr John Chisholm, the Men's Health Forum's chair of trustees, and also road-tested with men. You can have confidence that this is a reliable source of quality evidence-based health information.

The Men’s Health Forum need your support

It’s tough for men to ask for help but if you don’t ask when you need it, things generally only get worse. Especially during a major pandemic like Covid-19. So we’re asking.

Men appear more likely to get Covid-19 and far, far more likely to die from it. The Men's Health Forum are working hard pushing for more action on this from government, from health professionals and from all of us. Why are men more affected and what can we do about it? We need the data. We need the research. We need the action. Currently we're the only UK charity doing this - please help us.

Here’s our fund-raising page - please chip in if you can.
