Protect Your Staff from the Threat of Parcel Bombs With Neopost's Mailroom Security Equipment

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - April 20, 2011) - The BBC announced today that "viable" parcels bombs have been sent to the Celtic manager, Neil Lennon and two high profile fans of the Glasgow club.

The devices appear to have been "liquid based" which were intended to kill or maim.

One of the packages was intercepted by Royal Mail, two other devices were delivered to an MP's constituency office and the Faculty of Advocates in Edinburgh.

These recent events highlight the need for mailroom security when dealing with incoming mail. Security should be of paramount importance to any organisation and Neopost can help to reduce the risks of incoming mail.

The arrival of a malicious package, such as one containing an explosive device, slashing or cutting devices or suspicious potentially lethal substances could have a devastating effect on your company. And even if such an incident was found to be a hoax or a false alarm evacuating your premises could still prove costly to your business and dangerous to your staff.

In the current environment, with acts of terrorism back in the news, and with a wide range of organisations being targeted - from Government agencies and the public sector to top financial institutions, medical and research facilities – mail security is something no business can afford to ignore.

Although you cannot stop suspect packages being sent to your organisation, with Neopost's mail scanning products you can prevent them being opened. Screening mail makes it easier to eliminate any package that could be malicious and avoiding the disruption caused by evacuating the building.

Health and Safety regulations oblige all employers to carry out risk assessments and to act on the findings to protect their employees, visitors and members of the public from harm.

Investing in Neopost's X-Ray scanning equipment will provide real reassurance for your mailroom and the safety and security of all your employees.
