Council for Science Industrial Research(CSIR)

Omega provided security services to the SA Mint for 6 years. Access and egress control were our main functions, the protection of circulation coins, special coins made of gold, silver and platinum and controlling the movement of employees and visitors at the Mint.
All security personnel complied with the National Key Point Act special requirements for selection and training. Integrity testing using the IMI tool was a requirement for everyone to qualify for deployment at the South African Mint.
South African National Space Agency (SANSA)
On 1 August 2003 Omega started with security services at the CSIR Satellite Applications Centre (SAC) – one of South Africa’s National Key Points.
The SANSA Space Operations directorate (situated at Hartbeesthoek) provides tracking, telemetry and command services for geosynchronous and polar-orbiting spacecraft to the manufacturers, operators and users of satellites and launch vehicles, as well as for satellite data acquisition, thereby contributing significantly to the development and application of space science and technology, globally.
The contract came to an end in the late 2014 after 11 years of service to our client.
Omega secured a five-year contract with Sasol, starting on 1 July 2009, to provide advanced integrated security services to Sasol Synfuels and Sasol Coal Mining Operations in Secunda.
The contract made provision for the rendering of security services such as manned guarding, health, safety & environmental services as well as armed response. It was evident at the launch that not only did Omega demonstrate an understanding of the complexity of Sasol’s requirements, but its strong background in advance risk management was also identified as of great advantage and gain to Sasol Shared Services.
The contract ended in 2018 after a 7-year period.
