Safety Shout-Out for Bluestone Employee – Dan Tenaglia

“While Dan was on site at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia King of Prussia Campus, he called attention to an outside communications vendor looking to do work within the building. Dan alerted the CHOP EHS office of the activity and helped ensure no work was started without the necessary PCRA in place. Dan also took the time to review the vendor’s scope of work so Bluestone was ready for rescheduling”

The safety qualities observed include Integrity, Accountability, and Respect.
