Royal Mail Group – Provision of Personal Attack Alarms (140db) To Postal Workers:
This is a short update further to LTB No. 422/2021 issued on 6 October 2021.
Discussions with Royal Mail Group and ‘Dimensions’ the company’s work-wear suppliers have continued today and it has been agreed that the new Personal Attack Alarms (PAAs) will be made available on the Royal Mail Group website this week, (date to be confirmed) where members can pre-order the item.
There will be a clear message on the portal advising the workforce that this is a ‘pre-order’ item and it will be dispatched to them as soon as the stock is received into the warehouse.
In terms of lead-times, ‘Dimensions’ have been in contact with the manufacturer of the PAAs to see if the alarms can be delivered sooner than mid-November and a response is awaited.
