Cintas Corporation announced that its Distribution Center in Ashland, Kentucky has received Voluntary Protection Partnership (VPP) Star certification from KY Occupational Safety and Health (KY OSH). VPP is OSH’s highest recognition for the practice of and commitment to exemplary occupational safety and health and “Star” is its highest distinction.
 
“We are extremely proud of our Ashland, Kentucky Distribution Center employee-partners and their managers for earning the prestigious OSH VPP Star award,” stated Dan Braun, Sr. Vice President Value Improvements Initiatives, Cintas. “We are also very proud of all of our Cintas VPP sites throughout the nation, and those currently on the path to gaining this distinction.”
 
The Ashland facility first began its journey toward VPP designation nearly two years ago. They are now the 23rd Cintas facility to receive VPP designation, one of only twelve companies in the state of Kentucky to earn this honor, and the only one in all of Eastern Kentucky. The designation required monthly, rigorous audits and the close collaboration between management and employee-partners to achieve full engagement to continuous safety improvement.
 
Leigh Wallen, General Manager of the Ashland Distribution Center, commented on the upcoming celebration at the location stating, “The VPP safety management initiative is one that has proven to be extremely effective with our employee-partners, and one that we would like to share with the youth of our community as they begin to look at potential employers in the local workforce.”
 
High school students from surrounding school districts have been invited to attend the event as a means to educate the young talent of Ashland’s future workforce about the importance of workplace safety and how it can help them select an employer who is committed to employee safety.
 
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 U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, Mexico and Honduras.
