Safety and Certifications
Despite the inherently hazardous nature of much of Tube Tech’s work, it has never experienced a fatality from any cause. Even major injuries number no more than one for every ten years, despite operating in countries where regulations, enforcement and observation is often quite lax compared to the UK. The safety of operatives and clients on-site is absolutely paramount and Tube Tech devotes considerable resources to maintaining its excellent record through rigorous training in best practice and compliance, strict enforcement of regulations and the wearing of correct PPE at all times.
Safety Practices Recognised
Tube Tech International were presented with a contractor award from E.ON – the world’s largest investor-owned power and gas company.
“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. “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 team’s 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, Tube Tech’s Operations Director, 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 always be our first priority on every site.”
