OSHA Recognizes Cintas In Statesville, NC With Highest Safety Designation

Cintas Corporation (NASDAQ: CTAS) today announced that its uniform rental facility in Statesville, NC has received Carolina “Star” certification from the North Carolina Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Carolina “Star” is the state’s highest recognition for the practice of, and commitment to exemplary occupational safety and health, and mirrors the Federal OSHA Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) Star certification.

“Here is a major business in this country, whose number one concern is the safety of the people who work for it – not its bottom line,” said U.S. Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) during the award ceremony held at the Statesville facility on Friday. “I just can’t tell you how impressed I am with the culture of Cintas,” she added.

The Cintas uniform rental branch in Statesville began the Carolina Star process in 2011. The designation required close collaboration between management and employee-partners and successful completion of a strict and rigorous audit. Approximately 34 employee-partners work at the facility.

“This day marks both the end and the new beginning of a great challenge because the journey to continuous safety improvement is never ending,” said Tom Rager, Branch Manager. "I am so proud of our wonderful partners for their commitment to Cintas, to each other and to their loved ones by living the Cintas safety culture every day."

Of the 220,000 businesses in the state of North Carolina, only 145 have achieved Carolina star, according to Cherie Berry, North Carolina Labor Commissioner. “You are very special people and you should be very proud," she said.

The uniform rental branch in Statesville is the 8 th uniform rental facility and the 11 th company-wide to receive OSHA’s highest safety distinction. Cintas Corporation has approximately 350 facilities throughout the world actively pursuing VPP recognition by OSHA or the equivalent under a similar certifying body. This includes operations in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, Mexico and Honduras.
