OSHA has recognized Cintas Corporation's [customer]Chandler, Ariz., facility as a Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP) Star site, making it the first time an industrial launderer has received Star certification.
Darin Perkins, director of the Arizona Division of Occupational Safety and Health (ADOSH) said, “The quality of Cintas’ safety and health program is outstanding. Proof of this lies in Cintas’ low injury and lost workday rates which have resulted from implementing effective systems, including training and employee involvement, designed to protect employees at their facility.”
Phillip Holloman, Cintas president and chief operating officer, had this to say about the achievement, “Our employee-partners in Chandler, Arizona have proven to the entire industry that this level of safety excellence can be achieved.”
Cintas currently has 70 facilities nationwide seeking VPP acceptance.
