We are often asked what are the appropriate Polices and Procedures for dealing with the different types of Mail Borne Threats. We are also asked about information to assist in building a business case for a change of mail handling operations due to concern about Mail Borne Threats.
In response to these requests Powdersafe Pty Ltd has now released the Best Practice Guide (BPG) for dealing with Mail Borne Threats.
This is not just a ‘what do I do document’ the BPG explores why organizations remain vulnerable to this threat and what measures can be implemented to minimize the risk. Some of the topics covered in the BPG are the history of Mail Borne Threats, Legislative Framework, Risk Assessment, Workforce Planning and Training. Within each of these topics are multiple sub headings. The BPG then continues with thirteen relevant Policies and Procedures. There is a comprehensive glossary, a flowchart for mail processing as well as suggested further reading. A reference list of the international and domestic articles, guidelines, protocols and standards that were drawn on completes the document.
This a comprehensive document from which you can choose the information that best suits your organization. The BPG will save you many hours of research and is a document that should be held at all sites that handle the mail in your organization.
It is a small investment that may save you many lost hours of productivity and business interruption. The information contained in this Best Practice Guide is beneficial to any organization that receives mail.
