CINCINNATI—September 30, 2010 – The First Aid & Safety Division of Cintas Corporation (NASDAQ: CTAS) today announced the launch of incident management and material safety data sheet (MSDS) solutions, developed for Cintas by MSDSonline. MSDSonline is a leading provider of Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) solutions.  Cintas customers now have access to its on-demand Software as a Service (SaaS) products that help businesses reduce the potential risks and liability associated with workplace exposures, injuries and illnesses.

“Our new online service offering will allow safety professionals to better identify workplace hazards and consolidate incident information, ultimately maximizing productivity and reducing costs for the organization,” said Nancy Petersen, Senior Marketing Manager at Cintas.  “It will also enable businesses to better understand the root causes and identify the corrective actions necessary to build a culture of zero-incidents within the work environment.”
