Shredding Videotapes from Work

Shredding videotapes back to at least 1996 Protect Employee & Customer Privacy

Video surveillance is a fact of life in many industries. Highly affordable cameras and a desire to take additional steps to protect company property, employees and visitors have led many business owners to install security surveillance systems on their premises. One of the most common examples is banks and credit unions augmenting their security by shooting footage of people waiting in line for tellers.

With round-the-clock coverage becoming routine at office buildings, factories, warehouses and any other facility that requires advanced protection, videotapes can soon begin to add up as they are stored over days, weeks and even months.

This is why it is important to set up a plan for shredding videotapes on a routine basis. You’ll save money and resources that would otherwise need to be used to protect a room full of old surveillance tapes.

Videos Many Uses

Companies have a variety of reasons for videotaping employees on their premises, such as to curb theft or to catch saboteurs and vandals. Even while adhering to the rules about where you can tape and where you can’t (such as restrictions on recording video in break rooms and rest rooms), you still need to protect the privacy of your employees, clients and customers.

  • No need to allocate storage space for bulky tapes
