Our People

We see our success as the sum of the individuals that work with us; those that carry with them every day the spirit of innovation and service that Daniels was founded on.

Our North American team consists of over 860 staff, and represents a cross-section of over 20 nationalities. As a global business, we’re proud of the diversity that has been cultured in our workforce and the cross-collaborative strength of working across borders.


In 1986 Dan Daniels was introduced to a reality facing Australian nurses that he felt was too big to ignore, rising needlestick injury counts and the associated risks of HIV contraction. Working with healthcare practitioners, infection control experts, microbiologists and a team of highly skilled engineers, Dan innovated a solution – the Sharpsmart container, which in 38 years is still unrivalled as the safest and only sharps containment system in the world that classifies as a safety-engineered device.


Dan has tirelessly dedicated his life to building a company that would help eradicate needlestick injuries; he has injected into the business and its culture his passion of raising leaders, and he has set his strong personal values as the minimum benchmark to which we all aspire. We are proud of our leader and his unwavering passion to impact lives; the tenure, caliber and values-driven focus of the Daniels Health team is testament to his leadership.



We celebrate our people.

If you've had a great experience with one of our staff, please let us know. We would love to recognise them!
