Global Cleaning Specialists Recognised for Safety


Essex based industrial cleaning specialists beat off nationwide competition to win an ‘outstanding contribution to safety performance’ award from E.ON UK, one of the UK’s leading power and gas companies.


Tube Tech International Ltd were contracted to clean a number of industrial units while the E.ON Combined Heat & Power (CHP) station in Stoke on Trent was offline for maintenance earlier this year. “We had 13 different companies on site during our outage and we monitored over 80 personnel, checking on their safety practices on a regular basis. The outage was incident free and the Safety Performance of all contractors was of a high standard” says Phil Wooldridge, Site Manager at E.ON Stoke CHP. “From the moment we contacted Tube Tech and received their safety documentation it was obvious that they took safety as seriously as we do and as a result their teams’ safety practices on site were exemplary. They were considered to be the best of a group of contractors with a high level of safety awareness.”


On receiving the award Martin Byford, Operations Director with Tube Tech said; “Being recognised for our safety practices is a great pleasure for the whole team. Many contractors may talk about safety but at Tube Tech safety is and must be our first priority on every site.”

E.ON’s long established safety campaign entitled “Rule One” is to encourage a consistently high level of safety performance across all of their sites and the award to Tube Tech was part of a company wide recognition of excellence in safety performance by contractors.


Tube Tech is pleased to have been asked to return to the Stoke on Trent site to complete more specialist cleaning activities shortly.
