R U OK? Afield

As fly-in fly-out or drive-in drive-out practices become more common, more workers are being separated from their family and friend support networks. This is why we’ve been working with Bristow to encourage workmates to back each other by asking “are you ok?”

R U OK? Afield helps workmates talk to their peers when they suspect someone might not be ok. And it encourages them to do this on a regular basis. So whether you’re managing a team, or a member of a team wanting to reach out to a colleague, these resources are for you.
