Office Detox Days

The Records Manager and her staff are happy to visit School's Divisions and Units to give help and advice about managing records. They can also assist in running office detox days.

What is an Office Detox?

An office detox or black bag day is a special event, where everyone in a unit or team is encouraged to take time out from their work to look at their paper and electronic documents and consider which need to be kept and which need to be thrown away.  An office detox can promote efficient working, highlight problems, and help a team or unit to reflect on the records that they create and the ways in which they maintain them.  An office detox can also be use full when a relocation is imminent.  An office detox should be supplemental to regular record destruction which should be carried out in accordance with the University's Records Retention Schedule.
