Is it sturdy?
Not all used file cabinets are going to be sturdy. Some may be too outdated or in poor condition in order to hold up for very long. They may be inexpensive now, but replacing them in the next couple of years may not be worth it.

Does it work?
This point almost seems obvious, but depending on where you source your filing cabinet from you don't always get a guarantee that it works. That's why it's important to buy from a reputable company that does offer a guarantee.

Is it safe?

What brand is it?

Lateral Filing Cabinet Safety Tips for Your Office

Office safety first

A safe work environment is important to every business. With filing cabinets, this is even more so. Be sure to keep these safety tips in mind for your lateral filing cabinet purchases, office space planning and general office safety.

Safety features
It's imperative that your filing cabinets are armed with a Tilt Lock security features. This will prevent more than one drawer being open at once, which can help keep the filing cabinet from falling over. When you buy a used filing cabinet with this feature, you have to be sure that it in fact works!

Location and placement
Where you place your filing cabinet is also important. Keep them out of cramped or high-traffic areas. Consider how much space is needed to open the drawer with one person standing in front of the cabinet looking through the files while allowing enough space for traffic behind him/her.

File storage
Never stuff a lateral filing cabinet with too many files. Overstuffed file cabinet drawers can be difficult to search for files, which can potentially cause injuries, from paper cuts to wrist injuries. Not only that, but it also makes searching for files more difficult, which can cost you time and productivity.

Think first
When accessing a filing cabinet, be sure to look behind you when opening a drawer. When closing a file cabinet drawer, pay attention so you don't smash your fingers, which is a minor but common workplace injury.
