Welcome to the Current Students section of the site.
In this section you can keep up with all the updates that are happening in class.
On the left side you will find useful links for getting familiar with different aspects of occupational health and safety, they contain a lot of information but can be very helpful. The leadership links are specifically aimed towards the actual management of people, as that is a lot of what a Supervisor is.
On the right side you will find files and different regulations that may be useful to you in the workplace. There are also a couple cost calculators that can be used just so you can see just how expensive health ad safety can be.
Enjoy your stay from all of us at Aceis Group, and always remember Stay Safe!
