A valuable lesson in shredding
This summer, as a multitude of students move on, they leave behind personal information that needs to be destroyed.
Educational institutions are legally required to safely dispose of all confidential information they hold. One way to do this, and avoid sizeable fines, is by using a regular shredding service.
What should be shredded?
Each department will have their own specific documents.
Information about pupils, students and staff, including medical details, family records, staff reviews, etc.
Banking information, internal reports, financial records, and meeting minutes.
Management information, including budgets, legal contracts, and any reports or forms.
Personal records about staff, including payroll, appraisals, health and safety, and training information.
Corporate records, purchase orders, supplier information, maintenance contracts and other sensitive data.
Not just paper
Most shredding companies can destroy clothing, ID cards, tapes, and hard drives.
What to look for in a shredding company
They should be accredited and meet all relevant shredding standards with fully-vetted staff.
Make sure they can shred at your premises and offer a certificate of destruction.
