Case Study - Alcoa Leveraging Forwood to Deliver Strong Safety Performance

Since the dawn of the aluminum industry, the name Alcoa has been synonymous with operational excellence and leadership in the production of Bauxite, Alumina and Aluminum products. Each day, Alcoa strive for what they believe is the ambitious yet attainable goal of zero fatalities and zero life-threatening injuries.

When you implement CRM, it makes a huge difference to your fatality prevention program. It breaks down barriers with language and the culture. Although there are vastly different cultures from site to site, CRM enables standardization through a common understanding of the fatality risks and their critical controls. Forwood CRM helps us achieve that unity of language and understanding in the control verification process. When everyone is doing the same thing, the fatality prevention program becomes far more effective.

We’re able to help our people more in a real-time mode. We have all kinds of different reporting cycles going on. Now our team can jump in at any time and say, “Where are we?” or “Where am I at right now, compared to a month ago or six months ago?” That’s been really effective.
