Robinson Construction recently earned the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Quality Management Systems (QMS) Certification for structural steel erection with endorsements for seismic and metal desk installation. The AISC QMS Certification sets the quality standard for the structural steel industry and is the most widely recognized national quality certification program for the industry.

To become certified, companies go through a rigorous initial evaluation and are subject to annual reviews. The evaluations require a comprehensive administrative review, documentation audit, and on-site audit to evaluate a company’s quality management system rather than just specific product inspection. The program focuses on the entire process of fabrication and erection – confirming that a company has the personnel, organization, experience, procedures, knowledge, equipment, and commitment to meet the AISC Standards.

Because the program requires participants to set goals and holds them accountable for all aspects of their organization, from management responsibility to employee training to material purchasing and handling to project specific erection and safety plans - participants will continually improve over time. According to QC Manager Willy Oldham, “Robinson’s goal is to build quality structures from the start by focusing on preventing errors rather than correcting them after the fact. By pre-planning and quality tracking, we can reduce re-work, which is beneficial to all parties involved. AISC certified contractors are held to the strictest standards of quality and safety, which means our customers can rest assured that we not only know the way things should be done, but that we are actually doing them that way.”

Robinson Construction Company has recently earned status as a RAVS Plus Contractor by ISNetworld (ISN), the global leader in contractor and supplier management. RAVS (Review and Verification Services) Plus is an audit tool recently implemented by ISN that enables them to determine the validity of questions answered and documentation uploaded into a contractor’s account. To achieve this status, ISNetworld RAVS Plus conducted face-to-face interviews with Robinson field personnel to determine the company’s actual safety practices and ensure that employees have the competencies, training, and qualifications required to perform their specified job duties. According to Robinson Corporate Safety Director Eugene Besand, “ISN allows us to easily report and update our qualifications with our current ISN clients. It also affords us the opportunity to gain new clients.” Robinson is prequalified with more than 15 clients at nearly 50 different site locations through ISN. ISN currently supports over 550 Hiring Clients and 70,000 contractors and suppliers. Only 2% of those 70,000 contractors have achieved RAVS Plus Contractor status with ISN. “Anyone can click a button or submit a written document that satisfies safety requirements, but what does that prove? Achieving RAVS Plus status is proof that Robinson has a valid safety infrastructure.”

They collect self-reported information from contractors and suppliers based on regulatory and Hiring Client-specific requirements, and maintain it in one centralized platform.
