Compliments, Complaints and Feedback
If you wish to give feedback, or are unhappy with the quality of service you have received you have the right to complain. OSi is committed to delivering a high level of customer service.
We are committed to:
- Dealing with complaints in a courteous and efficient manner
- Resolve complaints where possible at the first point of contact
- Correcting any mistakes as quickly as possible
- Ensuring any errors do not re-occur
A complaint in the first instance should be taken up directly with the individual who provided the service or in his/her absence the supervisor of that area.
If it is not possible to resolve the matter with staff member or supervisor you may direct the complaint, preferably in writing, to OSi’s Customer Service Officer, who can be contacted at:
- The Customer Service Officer will issue a formal acknowledgement within 5 days.
- We will work to issue a full response to the complaint within 30 working days of receipt.
- In complex circumstances our response may be longer than 30 working days. In that instance we will inform the customer of that within 30 days of first receiving the initial complaint. We will also provide an estimate of the timescale for bringing the investigation to a conclusion, an explanation for the delay and that an update will be provided every 20 working days thereafter.
- If the complaint is upheld then steps will be taken to remedy the fault and we will provide appropriate redress to the customer.
- If you remain dissatisfied with the outcome of the investigation you have the right to appeal. In the first instance this will be investigated by the line manager responsible for Customer Service. If the matter fails to be resolved at that stage you have a right to appeal to the General Manager of Business & Marketing who has full responsibility for the management of all aspects of customer service and who reports to the Chief Executive Officer. If the matter is still not resolved, you have the right to appeal to the Office of the Ombudsman.
