Bosses in Lancashire have been advised to manage their boxes properly to reduce the chances of injury.

Speaking to the Lancashire Evening Post, Lorraine Birch, managing director of Preston information management firm IBEX, explained that organisations are still taking shortcuts when it comes to health and safety.

"It's all too common for businesses to place boxes of files on office floors, where there is a risk of workers tripping over them.

"There is also a danger of staff injuring themselves, lifting and carrying heavy boxes of documents as office space becomes more and more congested," Ms Birch told the news provider.

She added that employees should be taught to place sensitive documents into shredding machinery, which will ensure they are not obtained by unauthorised personnel.

Companies should also guarantee that their premises is tidied up on a regular basis, as this will eliminate clutter and unwanted materials, reducing the likelihood of workers falling over and sustaining injuries.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801606963-ADNFCR
