January has officially begun as we all return to school and work. The end of 2015 for LapSafe signified that it was once again time for the annual LapSafe awards. The awards took place on the last working day before Christmas at LapSafe head office in Wakes Colne, Essex which was followed by a festive buffet and Secret Santa.
All the staff took part in the voting during November by entering their vote into a ballot box and each vote being anonymous, All staff were present to hear the results. Which consisted of 17 categories in total, 15 of which were tongue in cheek titles such as:
