Episode 23 - dog attacks on delivery drivers

Ian Kerr

Dog attacks are a daily risk for delivery drivers across the world, whether working for the post or for a parcel/express operator.

There were 2600 reported dog attacks on Royal Mail delivery drivers in 2015. In response to the high rate of dog attacks, Royal Mail has launched an annual public awareness campaign called "Dog Awareness Week".

I spoke with Robert Kelly, Royal Mail's Safety Health and Environment Manager, about Dog Awareness Week and Royal Mail's other initiatives to improve safety for its delivery drivers. We cover:

  • Where dog attacks occur
  • The results of the dog awareness programme so far
  • What factors lead to dog attacks
  • Peak periods for dog attacks
  • Some simple ways to reduce dog attacks
  • What has been elevating the risk of dog attacks on delivery drivers
