As we navigate through the new normal of our personal and work environments due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many people must work from home. Despite the stay-at-home order, companies still need to keep moving in the right direction with employees now working remotely. Working from home can be an adjustment. There are new procedures and safety precautions that you may not have thought about before. There is an increased risk of security and breaches in office confidentiality, and no matter where you are working, you are still responsible for the safety of confidential papers. Just as the process was to securely discard papers in secure bins at the office – it is also important to do this while working from home. It’s still the same sensitive documents, no matter where you print. In addition, a work from home shredding solution can safely destroy your increased production of business records and reduce the risk of a security breach.
Shredding companies, such as Shark Shredding, offer low cost and safe shredding options to accommodate work from home employees. NO Touch – Shred Services, are available with scheduled appointments on-site at our facility. Employees wear gloves and masks. Clients can bring their personal documents, and view them being properly destroyed from a distance. In addition, Certificates of Destruction are issued as written proof of destruction. An average visit lasts no more than 5 minutes and in many cases, the client never lifts a finger.
Whether working at the office or your dining table, you are still responsible for protecting confidential work data. Reaching out to your shredding company will give you the protection you require. As you eventually return to your office, you should remember the best practices you used at home and bring them to the workplace.
