Don't Get Caught in a Health & Safety Trap

health and safety help
Don't get caught in a health & safety trap, get your documents scanned today!

Just picture it...

You have an office full to bursting with filing cabinets, boxes and folders of documents. Everyday office life for you is pretty cramped. You have to manoeuvre around boxes to find the documents you need or even to get out of the office to make a cup of tea.

The documents continue to pile up because you need to store them due to company policy. One day you are trying to skip around the boxes to reach the filing cabinet to find one document you need. You feel like you're completing an army assault course until...

While you think you're perfectly balanced between a couple of boxes and a filing cabinet, you lose your footing, falling over the pile of boxes. Not only have you knocked documents all over the floor but you've hurt yourself too.

You've got two options here:

Number One:
Agree with yourself that perhaps the accident was your fault for not being careful or maybe you should have cleared the boxes away earlier in the week. You decide that you will just have to put up with the injury you sustained from the incident.

Number Two:
If you are seriously hurt as a result of the incident, you may be considering further action against the company. But what if, after months of trials and meetings and, ironically, filling out paperwork, the tribunal comes to the conclusion that the incident was your fault or another unsatisfactory result?

These scenarios don't just apply to you as an employee either. What if you have a visitor to your office who sustains an injury due to the document storage situation in your office or perhaps you are the owner of the business who may have to pay out for a health and safety breach claim.

Here at Pearl Scan, we have a safe solution to this problem. We provide document scanning solutions to companies and offices in Manchester, Birmingham, London and across the rest of the UK. We can digitise all of your documents and make them easily searchable for better office efficiency. That's not all! We can also securely shred your documents once you are happy with the digital copies. Once the documents are shredded, they will no longer take up space in your office or cause a health and safety hazard. Like that old saying goes, 'It's better to be safe than sorry' and we completely agree.

If you would like some more information on the document scanning services we offer, get in touch today before you end up taking a trip to A&E.
