Name: Dean Hartnitt
Role on the Project: Safety and Health Specialist
“I grew up in western Oklahoma and Graduated Oklahoma State University with a (B.E.E) degree. I lived the last 16 years in Southern Missouri. I have worked in electrical and Telecommunications for 18 years. With Charter Communications, AT&T, Sprint, COX Communications.
What drives and motivates me is family, I have been married to my wonderful wife Patti for 22 years; we have 6 wonderful daughters and 4 grandchildren and two Shih Tzu puppies. I look forward to returning to my family after a long work week as most workers do.
So why Safety you ask! I enjoy working with and educating workers in safe work practice to ensure that they return home to their family and love ones at the end of the day.
I started this project with the DBLLC in August of 2016, in field safety and contractor compliance. I have had the opportunity to work alongside of some great crews. Which are paving the way for largest fiber optic network in Kentucky’s history, which will change lives forever. I’m proud to be a part of this great change for Kentucky’s future.”
