CALGARY, Alta. — Danatec Educational Services is celebrating its 25th anniversary this month. Incorporated in June 1985, the Calgary-based firm provides workplace health and safety compliance solutions for clients across Canada.
Danatec’s first books, published in June 1985, were created under contract to Transport Canada. The Transportation of Dangerous Goods Instructors Manual and corresponding TDG Handbooks have been updated many times since. Officials say Danatec was also the first company in Canada to publish a consolidated version of the Federal Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act and Regulations with update service.
Today, Danatec publishes and sells a wide variety of publications, training materials, products and online solutions across a variety of workplace safety topics.
“This year alone we will train over 100,000 people online, in the classroom and with our self-teach training materials,” says Jeff Power, vice-president of operations.
The company has two new products set to be introduced this fall: DanatecTV and Class 7 Radioactive training materials.
“We’re growing and changing, industry keeps asking for new materials and that’s exactly what we’re giving them,” said ,” says Alina Martin, vice-president of sales and marketing, and daughter of Danatec’s president, Ronald Martin.
“The next generation is taking over and I couldn’t be happier,” said Ronald Martin. “My daughter and her team will continue to grow and change our business. I’m sure the next 25 years will be as amazing, challenging and rewarding as the past 25 have been.”
