“Cintas is on a journey to achieve the highest level of safety recognition at all of our locations,” stated Rick Gerlach, Sr. Director of Safety and Health. “Earning OSHA’s VPP Star is not easy to do and we are thrilled for the local management team and front-line employee-partners for working together to achieve this recognition.”

There are approximately 14 million places of businesses in America, but only 2,217 of these locations are currently recognized under the VPP program. This Cintas location began its journey toward Carolina Star designation a few years ago by creating a strong safety improvement committee.

“Safety is a total team effort, and the level of engagement among our employee-partners is outstanding,” stated Jeff Wilt, General Manager. “I’m proud of our employee-partners for taking ownership and being committed to making safety part of the way we do business.”

The Greensboro location, which employs 150 people, is the 34th Cintas facility in the United States to receive the Carolina/VPP Star designation since 2011. Cintas Corporation has approximately 330 facilities throughout the world actively pursuing VPP recognition by OSHA or the equivalent under a similar certifying body. This includes operations in the US, Canada, Mexico and Honduras.
