Dan Kane Brings Over 25 Years of Experience and Fall Protection Expertise to HazTek Safety Management

KaneMEDFORD, N.J., February 21, 2019 — When HazTek Inc. brought on safety specialist Dan Kane as a Principal Consultant, they knew that his expertise in fall protection, rescue equipment, and PPE would be extremely beneficial to their clients — but they also saw him as a valuable resource to professional associations, the safety community, and his peers.

Kane’s commitment to safety was developed through the diverse path that he took through the industry. With nearly three decades of professional safety experience, Kane has worked for some of the largest manufacturers of fall protection and personal protective equipment in the world. Most recently, Kane held the position of Director of Safety Services at Diamond Tool in Philadelphia, PA, where he specialized in the evaluation, design, layout, sale and implementation of fall protection systems.

“We’re very proud to have Dan Kane on board with HazTek. In addition to bringing expert-level training and consultation services to our customers, he’s also an industry leader who inherently understands the changing needs of the construction industry,” says HazTek CEO Steve Jones. “Because of his relationships with contracting firms, professional organizations, and equipment manufacturers, Dan is abreast of the newest innovations and is able to provide creative approaches to the most challenging situations.”

Kane’s safety knowledge has been instrumental in the design of systems and solutions for several fall protection manufacturers, Fortune 500 companies, universities, utilities plants, and manufacturing facilities throughout the United States. In addition, he has often been called upon to train product testing engineers. These experiences in safety manufacturing led Kane to realize that he was a safety professional… who just happened to sell solutions and products.

Kane is an active member of the fall protection community and speaks at events for OSHA, MSHA, industry associations, unions, and universities. He is frequently asked by his peers to provide consultations, assessments, testing, training, design/application assistance, and professional reviews.

“It’s all about problem solving — and I want to solve problems,” notes Kane who prides himself on being “the guy with all the answers.” His philosophy is that a safety person has to understand systems to provide solutions… and having an encyclopedic memory doesn’t hurt.
