risk management review services

A risk management review is a systematic approach to assessing the safety and liability related practices within a program. Often, organizations are unaware of the current best practices or of risk management gaps within their organization. OSI’s collaborative review process results in a comprehensive report guiding your organization’s next steps.

Safely to the Summit

"Alex provided an invaluable external perspective to our organization and forced us to think about what we were doing, why we were doing it and how we could improve. His manageable report helped us see that we needed to put more resources into our training materials, emergency response protocols and maintaining consistency across different programs."
                  — Jay Creagh, Camp Manito-wish YMCA
