Posties Fear Getting Hit By Vehicles

Risk Management TrainingMean spirited dogs are no longer considered the mailman’s biggest threat,now reversing cars have become the number one concern. Approximately 200 postal delivery workers have been hit by reversing cars within the past year.

Victoria had 77 incidents of postmen being stuck by reversing vehicles, making them the area where this type of accident most frequently occurred. New South Wales and Queensland have both experienced 33 incidents of workers being hit, 22 in South Australia, and 21 in Western Australia.

Throughout the country, there has been 186 recorded incidents in which motorcycle postal workers were struck this year. Postal workers will be delivering postcards throughout the region in the next few days to remind residents to be diligent in their precautions when backing out of their driveways.
