October was a very busy month for the FQM team as we visited clients up and down the country. Here is some of the support we helped clients with throughout October.


FQM Senior Consultant Brian Christie carried out a further Site Safety Inspection for Permasteelisa (UK) for a new shop build in Gateshead, Newcastle.  This was to monitor and report on the quality, health and safety activities.

Albion Drilling Group – our MD Chris Docherty attended ADG’s ISO 9001:2015 external surveillance visit from the British Assessment Bureau as the ADG appointed Quality representative to provide them with onsite support using the Mango QHSE compliance software throughout the audit. We are happy to report that ADG received a clean bill of health and full certification remains in place.

FQM are delighted to continue to provide Quality Support to top Scottish security company DSD Scotland, whereby we ensure they are meeting all requirements of ISO 9001:2015 to maintain their certification, through our Internal Audit programme.

Our QHSE Advisor Calum MacDonald carried out an ISO 45001:2018 GAP analysis assessment audit for our long term Aberdeen client Kelton Engineering. This audit was to provide the management of Kelton Engineering with confidence that they are prepared to achieve transition from OHSAS 18001 to ISO 45001:2018 and outline any actions to be taken.

FQM have been continuing our implementation and support of the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System with Mango QHSE Compliance Software at the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) at their London HQ.

FQM completed the following annual audits on our clients throughout October:

AMT Intercargo against the clauses of ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2007

FQM QHSE Coordinator Robbie Cairns completed further on and offsite QHSE support for many of our clients throughout October. This service sees our team working within our client’s facilities, at offsite locations and sometimes remote at construction and other sites. This included supporting our clients on the management of their Mango QHSE Compliance Software. This month that included, FPG, Alex Nangle Electrical and Processplus.

October also saw several management system handovers to our ISO clients to the ISO 9001:2015, 14001:2015 and 45001:2018 Standards.

Our MD Chris Docherty has continued this month to be working with a large Oil and Gas operator with North Sea assets to undertake a strategic review of the UK operations management of Quality, through undertaking stakeholder interviews, system reviews and a detailed review of QA/QC support currently and for future needs and expectations.

One of our QHSE Advisors Calum MacDonald has continue to provide support to Aberdeen based dance company City Moves, in the areas of Health and Safety legal compliance. We work with clients of all shapes and sizes, but we have to say this is the first Dance company and it’s great to see them taking responsibility for their staff, customers and visitors.

We delivered out in-house ISO 9001:2015 Internal Auditor training to an existing client in Dundee, the successful Engineering and Racing company Agra Engineering.
