Let’s work together to make all fishing vessel operations free from human rights abuses.
On-board Social Accountability (OSA) will make a real difference to improving working conditions, well-being and livelihoods in global seafood production.
OSA will use its unique independent on-board social accountability expertise, management systems, and assessment and capability building tools to ensure that leading fishing companies, market players, major buyers, NGOs and RFMOs, are able to ensure decent and dignified working conditions through adopting global best practices and implementing the OSA Model and Management System.
OSA also has capability, expertise and experience to support aquaculture operations to develop, implement and assess social accountability.
World's first full on-board social
accountability management system
We support companies to meet their social responsibilities and expectations for their most important resource, their people - crew, skippers and company personnel!
The On-board Social Accountability (OSA) Model encompasses 20 indicators from leading international labour welfare standards and guidelines. These are adapted specifically to seafood operations including vessels, aquaculture & processors.
The OSA Model will improve transparency for companies, fleets, retailers, governments and civil society. It will also provide valuable performance data back to the company to improve the productivity, efficiency and effectiveness of their workforce.
The OSA global reporting system will enable key stakeholders (market, buyers and NGOs) to understand how seafood bought from specific companies, countries or regions perform against the OSA indicators.
