Andy Baines-Vosper - Founder of Beneath the Hardhat

Beneath the hard hat

Having worked in operational delivery for Balfour Beatty for over 13 years, Andy has seen first hand the pressures that the nature of our industry can bring. Combining that with his own past experiences of mental ill health and his work with various organisations outside the industry such as the Samaritans, Andy is passionate and committed to doing whatever he can to merge these experiences and help those in our business and the rail industry who may be suffering.

Andy has recently founded Beneath the Hard Hat, his own mental wellbeing video series for the rail industry where he strives to promote positive mental wellbeing whilst ensuring suicide prevention is at the heart of what he does. From shared experiences, specialist training, book giveaways, Wellbeing WhatsApp communities and more, he constantly strives to find new and engaging ways for people to feel empowered to know that its ok not to be ok and that they are not alone.
