MEMBER NEWS: Fulkrum receives two additional industry certifications

Fulkrum, a leading provider of inspection, expediting, auditing and technical staffing to the energy industry, has received certifications of its Management Systems by two industry leading Standards. This first, ISO 45001:2018 certifies Fulkrum’s Management System for Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S), and the second, ISO 14001:2015, certifies Fulkrum’s Environmental Management System (EMS).

The ISO 45001:2018 standard was developed by a committee of occupational health and safety experts – the international standard focuses on reducing workplace risks and improving employee safety, providing a framework for health and safety processes within the workplace and allowing the businesses to demonstrate their best-practice examples.

Setting a criteria for an effective environmental management system, the ISO 14001:2015 standard helps businesses take responsibility for their impact on the environment and improve overall environmental performance.

Both of these certifications cover the provision of the recruitment of quality and inspection personnel and associated services to the energy sector, which is Fulkrum’s core business.

Combined with Fulkrum’s existing ISO 9001:2015 certification which sets out principles for a Quality Management System, these three certifications provide accreditation of Fulkrum’s Integrated Management System (IMS) covering all aspects of health, safety, environment and quality.

Brock Falkenhagen, Global Vice President, commented: “With international offices and global project scopes, we are committed to creating a safe and supportive workplace for both Fulkrum team as well as our inspectors, and our safety management system reflects Fulkrum’s dedication to quality, reliability, and safety.

In line with Fulkrum’s environmental policies, the ISO 14001:2015 certified management system will support our efforts to enhance our environmental performance, fulfill compliance obligation(s) as well as achieve Fulkrum’s environmental objectives.   The energy transition and the increasing demand for decarbonisation should be a priority on any business agenda, and it’s imperative that Fulkrum’s management systems reflect that.”

Established in 2010 in Corby, Fulkrum has grown to a global company with a wide international footprint. Operating in the four key regions – the Americas, Europe and Africa, APAC and the Middle East – Fulkrum has a sustainable track record in the oil and gas, petrochemicals and renewables sectors, offering a wide range of multi-disciplinary services.

AREG is the original energy transition organisation, working on behalf of members to empower the energy supply chain and champion its expertise. Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to find out more about membership.

AREG has played an important role in the growth of Scotland’s renewable energy sector, engaging the supply chain and developing the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. However, we are only at the very beginning of the transition that AREG was established to both lead and support so there are still opportunities for companies to get into the constantly evolving renewables supply chain. We look forward to continuing our work together as renewables builds on its place as Scotland’s main source of power, and as we seek to deliver real change in the crucial areas of heat and transport.

Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce has worked closely with AREG since its formation. The recent progress in the developments of offshore wind projects by Equinor and Vattenfall are as a result of the work of the group over many years. The north-east is known as the oil and gas capital of Europe. At the Chamber, we believe the region must evolve its position to being recognised as the energy capital. Whilst hydrocarbons will continue to be essential in driving our economy for years to come, the generation of renewable resources will play an increasingly important role in providing cost-effective power, innovative development and economic growth.

The enthusiasm and dedication of the early group that would become AREG was fundamental in us choosing to launch All-Energy in Aberdeen. The first tiny show was held in 2001, and AREG’s Chairman at the time, Jeremy Cresswell, played such an active role that I often describe him in terms such as All-Energy’s ‘midwife’. All-Energy is now the UK’s largest renewable and low carbon energy exhibition and conference in terms of number of attendees, space booked, and number of exhibiting companies. As AREG became firmly established, their presence and support for the event grew spectacularly over the years. We thank them most sincerely for their invaluable input.


Vattenfall has forged a strong working relationship with AREG through the development of the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. AREG has worked tirelessly on behalf of the North East and it can take enormous credit for the growth of sustainable energy in the region and the path it has cleared for the region to capture further investment.


Aberdeen City and Shire is emerging as a key location for renewables by successfully transferring its world-class oil and gas expertise into the sector and AREG has done much to advance this through a broad range of initiatives. It has acted as a catalyst in driving further investment in the local economy by engaging with companies, Government, public bodies and existing projects and we have been pleased to support their efforts. Scottish Enterprise will continue to engage with AREG as we increase Scotland’s use of renewable energy.
