AWAC employees approximately 5,100 (2017) people across its global operating facilities. Over 90 per cent of AWAC’s workforce is engaged in the mining and refining of bauxite into alumina.
The safety and wellbeing of employees and contractors at work is a fundamental human entitlement as is the right to collectively bargain and freely associate. AWAC, through its operator/manager Alcoa, works to strengthen a culture that promotes health and safety as the priority concern in all work activity. We also prioritise and support;
- employee diversity in our operations
- individual dignity
- respecting people’s rights and treating people fairly
- providing opportunities for individuals to develop their skills and expertise
- respecting labour rights worldwide.
This commitment is reflected in our human resource policies.
