  • Overview

    Our story began with a passionate idea that we could change the world.... And to be honest, we’ve never stopped believing that... In 1986 it was a simple concept that microbiology teamed with innovation and clinical contribution could eliminate an issue that was profoundly impacting the healthcare industry – HIV acquired through needle-stick injuries.


    In Australia, we lived out our dream. Investing years into R&D to create the safest containment system in the world and taking on the industry status quo to petition for higher standards in sharps protection, we witnessed an 80+ percent reduction in disposal-related needlestick injuries nationwide. And then we kept going...


    Today Daniels Health, led by our founding visionary Dan Daniels, is working across healthcare facilities globally to usher in a new minimum standard in sharps and medical waste management. Bringing safety and infection control to the forefront of healthcare waste management, and ensuring KPI’s of cost, waste volume, and environmental impact is a shared responsibility between the waste generator and its Daniels partnership, Daniels Health is bringing healthcare waste back into the clinical spotlight.


    In 32 years, from a home garage with nothing but makeshift PVC waste tubes and an irrepressible dream, Daniels has grown to become one of the most influential healthcare service companies in the world. Its safe practices have become the benchmark of global standards, its robotic washing and treatment technologies have achieved unprecedented levels of decontamination efficacy, and its products are esteemed unrivaled industry-wide in the protection of the safety of healthcare workers. We are collectively and passionately committed to Making Healthcare Safer.
