Tackling dog attacks on postal workers

Posted in: Animal Attacks Workplace Injuries 

A recent report has recommended that new legislation be introduced to help tackle the problem of dog attacks on postal workers.

The report, commissioned by Royal Mail and prepared by Sir Gordon Langley, also recommends that Royal Mail should actively pursue legal action against the owners of dogs which attack postmen and women

According to the report, over 3000 postmen and women were attacked across the UK by dogs from April 2011 to April 2012.

Donald Brydon CBE, Chairman, Royal Mail Group, commented: “Dog attacks cause injuries and terrible trauma to our staff. Nobody should have to endure this and our staff are at an increased risk of such attacks simply because of the job they do.

We welcome the findings in Sir Gordon Langley’s independent report, especially his call for an urgent reform of the laws in England and Wales. We have also taken on board his comments that Royal Mail should take a more robust approach with customers whose dogs attack postmen and women. We will adjust our policies immediately.
