Abstract

Failure to manage the well-being and work-life balance of railway workers may result in an increased risk to train safety and employees’ health. This article reports the findings of a study that measured positive well-being and work-life balance, and identified the factors affecting these among UK railway staff. On the whole, staff who perceived high levels of control and support had a better work-life balance and an increased sense of well-being. A positive personality was associated with positive well-being both at work and outside of work.
