Angus Academy Orientation Program
Every member of the ACML team participates in a three-part orientation program. Part One will start on the first day of employment and includes Health and Safety training, through the Angus Academy. Part Two of the training program concentrates on job-specific orientation and Part Three consists of continuous, quarterly, company-specific training modules.
Beyond the orientation program, employees benefit from training, continuing education, coaching and mentorship aimed at developing the skills that lead to continuous improvement and career growth.
Part 1 – Health, Safety & Hazard Recognition Training
To ensure each employee begins work with the confidence that they can perform their duties in a safe manner ACML provides all staff with appropriate and timely training prior to beginning work at a client’s site.
Staff are trained on required items such as:

A thorough orientation process is only the initiation into the “Safety First” culture for our employees and will continue throughout their tenure.
