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.

They follow the direct protocols established by my company as well as consult with other available resources to ensure they have captured any events that reflect on a supplier’s performance. Each employee is receptive to any inquiries and are willing to shift their focus to meet our needs when emergency projects arise. It is a pleasure doing business with and having Purchasing Services Company as part of our team!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and facilitation in implementing the EHS Prequalification process. There were many questions and challenges in going from previous system to the new one. Your patience and detailed explanations on the ratings, insurances and application to multiple sites even within one location has made it a stronger system. I am confident that going forward, as the process evolves it will improve even further.

When I joined JM Smuckers 8 years ago, I introduced my leadership team to PSC, whom I had been working with at my prior position. Corporate and my leadership team were very impressed by PSC’s phenomenal tracking system. PSC disclosed key safety performance points, assisting us in selecting qualified contractors for a major project. In addition, PSC collects and review all Certificate of Insurance from my service suppliers to make sure correct coverage amounts, dates & language requirements are valid and available with a click.
Before PSC, I wasn’t familiar with the contractors performing services on site. Now, with a click, I see my location’s real-time onsite supply base, the end user, the work each contractor is performing and their overall compliance status. For contractor’s specific requirement details, all that is needed is a second click. PSC provides a cost-effective method of tracking Safety Prequalification Process & Certificate of Insurance from my service providers.
No company wants a high risk, unsafe, un-insured contractor on their property, providing services. PSC helps reduces the risk of injuries and fatalities and provides a safer environment for our employees and contractors, at a low cost.
