How We Operate

We provide expert investigators and other specialists to predict, prevent and respond to your human risk factors

We are agile, responsive and highly capable

When we engage with you, you get our full and undivided attention. We know that a personalised service drives better outcomes. You will have a top team and a dedicated manager.

OSACO's approach and methodology is two-fold

The majority of damaging human behaviour in organisations is predictable and often entirely preventable.
  • Predictive and preventative
  • Reactive and responsive

We understand the context in which you operate

OSACO team members have lived, worked, conducted and managed investigations and other services in the places where you are. We understand your on-the-ground realities. We also work in headquarter locations and have a good working understanding of the needs of any organisation, its regulations and stakeholders.

Our specialisation and focus is to conduct effective investigations not for you, but ‘with’ you
