Dave Elniski
Industry Advisor, Safety & Compliance

While I have been around trucks, trailers, and equipment since I was a child, my work in the transportation industry started in 2014.  I started as a driver doing a brief bit of dock and local work before hitting the road as a long-haul flatbed driver.  Safety and compliance have always been important to me, and I made the transition into the office as a flatbed company’s safety manager before being hired by AMTA. I am proud to be one of the early Certified Transportation Safety Professional (CTSP) designation holders through AMTA, and I am currently working on occupational health and safety courses from the University of Alberta’s certificate program.  In 2013 I graduated from the University of Lethbridge with a research-focused bachelor’s degree, so between my industry experience, safety qualifications, and research background, I am ready to help AMTA members with their safety and compliance issues.  Outside of AMTA I am a reservist in the Canadian Armed Forces and enjoy playing music and jamming with local musicians.  I live in Lethbridge, AB with my wife and our twin daughter and son who were born in 2017.
