Mail Room Safety Audits

The mail handling area is an important communication hub in any organisation. It is also a vital screening point for the entire organisation. The role of the mail handling area needs to be considered in the same way as a reception area that screens and verifies incoming visitors before allowing them access into the organisation. One item of mail should not compromise the safety of the staff.

All it takes is one disgruntled individual to turn a piece of mail into a weapon.  If you do not have the appropriate measures in place it may have a very significant impact. The mail handling area can be the Achilles heel of the organisation.
