Archiving, Office Space and Storage Post Pandemic

Space needed to store paperwork and archive documents

Archiving, office space and storage post pandemic

As offices re-open following the lockdown, they have had to install safety measures to protect those staff who need to come into the office and who therefore cannot continue to work remotely.
Inevitably, this has meant spacing desks further apart, installing protective screens and strict cleaning regimes.
But there are many businesses and organisations that are legally required to keep archive documents. Some maybe for many years. This includes solicitors, accountants, health authorities and local authority social services. Especially those involved in the protection of children and young people.

Legal Requirement

In some cases, the legal requirements mean these documents must be kept for many years and if they are in physical form these archives can take up a great deal of space.

However, despite a more general move to online archiving there have been some well-publicised instances of breaches in data security. In recent years GDPR (General Data Protection regulations) have imposed strict rules on the protection of people’s personal data.

Historians and researchers, also, point to the value of physical documents as an aid to understanding context and reference for developing their theories and knowledge.
