What Caltag Medsystems are doing to protect our staff and customers:

- Home working for our employees where possible.

- Providing additional training for staff on site to ensure the continuity of operation and practicing social distancing.

- Increasing stock at our UK facility for popular products.

- Coordinating with our shipping service providers (FedEx, DHL, TNT and QuickStat) and adjusting as the situation evolve.

- Following the strictest hygiene standards with hand sanitiser stations around the business, disinfectant sprays and alcohol wipes at workstations, and posters reminding staff to wash their hands regularly.

The Fitness Team!

As a healthy start to the new year, some of the Caltag Medsystems Team have signed up to an 8-week course of Pilates; the classes being held at the Caltag Medsystems offices before work. Hopefully, all this exercise will get us into shape after any Christmas overindulgence's – that is, if we don’t succumb to biscuits and cake halfway through the morning!  As the classes only started last week, we have a way to go to see the positive results, but we should be a fitter and leaner team by the end of it.

Young Carers Bucks

This year over Christmas, a group decision was made to forgo the office “Secret Santa”, and instead donate to a local charity. We were proud to raise £176 for Young Carers Bucks. They support 6-18 year olds who care for someone in their own home who is ill, has a physical or mental disability, or drug or alcohol dependency.  A truly worthy cause.

James the Mince Pie Champion!

During our staff meeting this month,  we thought we'd get into the spirit of the season by having a competition to see who could eat the most mince pies in 1 minute.  

There were 2 front-runners right from the start with James just beating Camilla with about 5 seconds to spare.  This is his second win in this type of competition as he also won our hot dog eating challenge.  Hope his prize of a magnum of Prosecco washes it all down!
