Meet the OSI Team!

At OSI we are grateful to work with an incredible team, including some of the most qualified risk management consultants with decades of experience in the outdoor field. We had the opportunity for a few interviews at the Wilderness Risk Management Conference in October 2015 to give voice to the consultants you are likely to work with on your risk management review or other project supporting your program's risk management needs.
