Cintas Corporation announced that its uniform rental facility in Chester, Va., near Richmond, has received Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) “Star” worksite designation from the Virginia Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the agency's highest recognition for the practice of, and commitment to, exemplary occupational safety and health. The facility becomes the third Cintas uniform rental operation to receive the coveted VPP “Star” status, and the fourth company-wide.

“This type of achievement can only be realized when everyone is working together for one common goal,” said Howard Baron, General Manager of Cintas in Chester, Va. “To say I'm proud of my team would be an understatement! It's a great accomplishment that is deserved by a great group of employee-partners.”

The Cintas uniform rental facility in Chester, Va. officially began the VPP process in 2006. Following close collaboration between management and employee-partners to demonstrate the company's exceptional culture of safety and successful completion of a strict and rigorous audit, the Chester facility becomes the 56th location in the state of Virginia to be awarded the designation.

“Receiving the VPP 'Star' award here in the state of Virginia is no small feat. Every year, only a small number of companies are ever awarded this status,” said Jim Cheng, Secretary of Commerce and Trade, Commonwealth of Virginia. “The effect is companies save money in the long term, the employees are safer and healthier and the state saves inspection time, manpower and money. It's truly a win-win for everyone.”

As a facility with leading safety and health practices, the Chester, Va. uniform rental facility is constantly integrating improvements to its safety and health programs. The company employs 120 people in Chester and 1,000 statewide.

Cintas Corporation currently has more than 130 facilities companywide actively seeking either VPP certification or recognition under other OSHA-administered safety excellence programs.

Headquartered in Cincinnati, Cintas Corporation provides highly specialized services to businesses of all types primarily throughout North America. Cintas designs, manufactures and implements corporate identity uniform programs, and provides entrance mats, restroom supplies, promotional products, first aid, safety, fire protection products and services and document management services for approximately 900,000 businesses.
