All mail and package service facilities are faced with many challenges in evaluating their facility’s ability to detect and manage biological and chemical threats or potential explosives.
The USPS Inspection Service has stated that they have investigated an average 16 actual mail bombs over the past few years. Since the 2001 anthrax letter attacks that killed 5 Americans and an additional 17 were sickened, there have been few additional attacks and based on the USPS efforts, the risks have been significantly reduced.
There have been 52,000 incidents reported and investigated since 2001 that have proven to be hoaxes or false alarms according to the USPS Inspection Service. Regardless that these events have proven to be harmless, there is still potential impact to the organization in loss of productivity and ultimately revenue, in responding to the threat. Having an effective plan in place allows an organization to ensure the safety of their employees as well as reduce the impact to productivity and loss of revenue.
