Dogs Vs Postmen. Dogs Are Winning

‘Since 2006, more than 24,000 staff have been attacked while on deliveries, with around 4,000 attacks reported annually…

…The Communication Workers Union (CWU) has called on the government to implement stronger legislation on the matter.

The Royal Mail has spent more than £100,000 on campaigns and equipment hoping to reduce the risk of injury.

On Wednesday it revealed that nearly 400 postal worker took time off sick last year because they had been attacked by dogs.’

Forget ‘campaigns and equipment’. Start investing in Postman training and dog attack avoidance. Maybe someone needs to point the postmen towards my ‘Surviving a dog attack’ article.
