Clear Desk Policy

 

A Policy of the organisation which directs all personnel to clear their desks at the end of each working day, and file everything appropriately. Desks should be cleared of all documents and papers, including the contents of the 'in' and 'out' trays! The purpose of the Clear Desk Policy is not simply to give the cleaners a chance to do their job, but to ensure that sensitive papers and documents are not exposed to unauthorised persons out of working hours.
