Background and General Information

The privacy provisions of the federal law, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), apply to health information created or maintained by health care providers who engage in certain electronic transactions, health plans, and health care clearinghouses. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has issued the regulation, "Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information," applicable to entities covered by HIPAA. The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) is the Departmental component responsible for implementing and enforcing the privacy regulation. 

As a business associate under HIPAA, and as an independent contractor providing document shredding/destruction service, we will appropriately safeguard all Protected Health Information and will not use or disclose to a third party unless required by law until shredded, and issue a certificate of destruction at completion.

We offer the perfect collection stations for storage of confidential material prior to destruction. Attractive, durable and economical, these containers will help you improve the security of classified company memos, financials, sales projections, payroll, proposals and correspondence.    

With a wide variety that's suitable for any office environment, our containers are attractive and conveniently sized to offer superior security for your confidential documents. These models feature a front & top opening for easy removal of bags, a universal locking system to keep your information secure, and a front (or top) slot allowing the documents to fall in the container.
