DOCUMENT SHREDDING IN SINGAPORE

Every office possesses very confidential documents of staff or business transactions that should not get into the wrong hands. These documents are very sensitive, private and are meant to remain like that. But these documents can’t be stocked up in a drawer or cupboard forever; they have to be disposed of, and the safest way is by shredding.

 

WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE SHREDDING

Shredding protects vital information. Moreover, shredding confidential paper complies with the law, it helps to prevent fire outbreak and even the paper gets recycled afterwards.

AGREEMENT WITH THE LAW

It is our legal right to protect our confidential information. As a matter of fact, you can be penalized for improper discarding of confidential information. All organizations need to carry out proper disposal of private information and protect every personal data in their care. Once a document is no longer in use, it should be disposed of best by shredding.

 

DOING AWAY WITH CLUTTER AND FIRE OUTBREAKS

Keeping piles of documents in the office increases the risk of a fire outbreak. There should be constant disposal of these documents by shredding once they are no longer in use. Every office should own a secure shredding console with someone placed in-charge.

Although a third-party shredding service is the best because it does not involve capital investment, frequent maintenance service and the time spent by employees at the shredding machine can be better used at making money for the company!

 

PREVENTS LEAKAGE OF CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION AND FRAUD

No organization wants to go through any sort of scandal/fraud or lose personal data of its employees to anybody. So to make sure this does not happen, it is very important to shred unused private documents and data.

Vital information of a company’s business or private data of an employee in the wrong hands can cause a lot of damage. A pile of documents with an identity such as name and age that is not properly thrown away is a potential threat to the person already.

The best way of disposal is the regular shredding of these documents. This is also to comply with Singapore’s PDPA regulations.

 

SHREDDED PAPER ARE RECYCLED

Paper recycling should be encouraged instead of burning them and cutting down of trees. After shredding, the shredded remnants can still be recycled as raw materials. When your documents get shredded, they are recycled and made into recycled paper.
