OSA believes in delivering benefits back to companies
Imagine being able to understand and validate how your best vessels or fleet operates - how the crew perform, their accident rate, fuel consumption, crew health and nutrition, skipper performance, retention rate, catch levels, bycatch levels etc.
Then, imagine being able to apply all this data to all your other vessels or fleets to improve their productivity and efficiency by adjusting their operational practices, processes and procedures to deliver maximum productivity.
Finally, imagine having buyers choose your product from your company because they can see what you have done to track and improve social accountability on board your vessels.
The OSA approach is specific to labour on board seafood operations that fishing companies, buyers and markets can manage in one single system.
The On-board Social Accountability (OSA) Model encompasses a robust multi-tiered in-depth assessment, risk analysis and training programme with over 20 indicators that meet leading international labour welfare standards and guidelines. Adapted and tested since 2014 specifically to seafood operations including vessels, aquaculture & processors.
The OSA Programme has a multi-tiered approach which is tailored for clients to enter at any level depending on their requirements and to understand their social accountability risk at the appropriate level.
Tier 1: Country level
Tier 2: Fleet, gear and fishing location level
Tier 3: Company/vessel level
