The Center Ossipee, East Wakefield, and Conway (all leased) post offices are in the Maine-New Hampshire-Vermont District. The Postal Service is required to maintain a safe and healthy environment for both employees and customers in accordance with its internal policies and procedures and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) safety laws. Our objective was to determine if Postal Service management is adhering to building maintenance, safety and security standards, and employee working condition requirements at post offices.
We found that building maintenance, safety, and security at the Center Ossipee, East Wakefield, and Conway post offices did not meet prescribed standards. We identified 43 deficiencies (12 were corrected during or after our site visits) at the three facilities that ranged from minor to more serious violations (see Appendix A). We did not identify any security issues at the three facilities.
