What employees say

“Since I started with ORS as a graduate on the Health and Safety team, it has provided me with an unlimited amount of experiences both professionally and personally while also challenging me on a daily basis. I have had the pleasure of working on such a broad range of projects helping me develop my skills and knowledge from one project to the next. On top of working on such interesting projects, I have met and learned even more from my colleagues. At ORS, there is a proactive culture for career development throughout the office structure and this has allowed me progress to the health and safety team lead.”

It has been a great and challenging opportunity so far and I look forward to many more opportunities down the line.”

What defines us

Our Competitive Advantage

The multidisciplinary service. We are the only Irish consultancy offering this blend of services and while some customers may only require one service at a particular time, the support from other specialist fields is a source of value.

We focus heavily on the client relationship, emphasising responsiveness and dependability of delivery, building long lasting relationships through investment in client events. This source of competitive advantage adds a strong subjective element to our brand.

We cultivate a unique work environment, centred around trust, autonomy, and flexibility. We have a low attrition rate and a strong organisational culture. Our brand is therefore appealing to a wider group of stakeholders, i.e. current and future employees, eventually translating to a more consistently delivered service.



  • Results & value focused
  • Quality
  • We demonstrate integrity in all our work. 
  • Communication 
  • Honesty
