Cintas Lafayette facility bags OSHA VPP star certification

Cintas Corporation announced that its uniform rental facility in Lafayette, La. has received Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) Star certification from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The VPP Star Certification is OSHA’s highest recognition for the practice of and commitment to exemplary occupational safety and health.

The Cintas uniform rental facility in Lafayette is the 17th facility companywide to receive Star designation. The facility’s 124 partners, along with representatives from OSHA and state and community officials, celebrated the honor with a flag raising ceremony held at the facility in Lafayette on Oct. 28.

“Since opening our doors in 1999, our location has always maintained a good safety performance record,” said Richard Guillory, Cintas General Manager of Lafayette. “However, in order to take our safety performance and engagement to the next level, we realized that we needed to pursue VPP certification. For Cintas, safety is a top priority.”

Cintas’ Lafayette facility began the VPP process two years ago. The designation required successful completion of a strict and rigorous audit and collaboration between all levels of management and employee-partners in order to create an environment of continuous safety improvement.

Cintas Corporation has more than 360 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.
