Tana Training Assessors
Dan Tana is a local born and bred from Whangarei. In 1964 he began scaffolding, served an apprenticeship in rigging and followed all types of construction throughout Aotearoa, New Zealand. He then flew across the ditch to Tasmania Australia in 1970, where he performed rigging and scaffold duties in a nickel mine in Roseberry Tasmania for a short time. Dan returned to New Zealand and continued working on construction sites around New Zealand.
In 2000, Dan traveled back to Australia, this time to Kalgoorlie where he started as a rigger / scaffolder with JR Engineering, later acquired by Downer Engineering. Dan's skills and expertise allowed him to move into a managing position in the scaffolding division for the company, spending a majority of his time servicing mine sites in the Goldfields and further north into Port Headland and beyond.
Our point of difference is therefore the experience Dan has to offer in the way of:
- Real life testimonies
- Able to respond immediately to questions in most areas on high risk work
- Able to put together a string of relevant information to underpin facts
- Provides “then and now” examples in safety
This puts Dan in good stead for experience in all areas of his training which includes:
- Steel mill
- Power stations
- Satellite station
- Communication towers
- Schools and hospitals
- City construction
- Aluminium smelter
- Off shore oil jacket
- Residential housing
Dan also provides consultation services if required. For more information contact us.
