Why is Bomb Threats Training Important?

It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work.

Currently, there isn’t any legislation to help guide organisations in this area. However, The Criminal Law Act of 1977 does have a small section dedicated to bombing hoaxes.

The Criminal Law Act 1977

Section 51 of The Criminal Law Act 1977 focuses on bomb threats and bomb hoaxes, it states:

(1) A person who— (a) Places any article in any place whatever; or (b) Dispatches any article by post, rail or any other means whatever of sending things from one place to another,with the intention (in either case) of inducing in some other person a belief that it is likely to explode or ignite and thereby cause personal injury or damage to property is guilty of an offence.
