Alcoa USA Corp. (Alcoa) has literally spent decades creating and growing the robust safety cultural that exists within our company. As a location manager for Alcoa, I can attest to the fact that a robust location safety program or culture begins with proper screening of contractors. This screening process provides a first look at the company being considered for onsite work and lets me know if their safety performance meets my expectations. It also provides an insight to areas where their performance is lacking so I can dedicate staff time to auditing that particular work element. For me and my team, everything I described starts with the folks at Purchasing Services Co. I have relied on their work products and expertise in property vetting companies for years now. Everything . . . everything that my staff and I do is built on top of the solid work products Purchasing Services Co. provide.
