Cintas Corp.’s plant in Indianapolis recently achieved certification with the Indiana Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) as a “STAR” site for its outstanding performance in proactive safety measures aimed at incident prevention, according to news reports.

“Without a doubt, the Cintas Corporation is an example of excellence in proactive safety and health,” said Indiana Department of Labor (IDOL) Commissioner Rick J. Ruble. “Management and staff are enthusiastic about a hazard-free workplace and make training and injury and illness prevention programs a top priority.”

Cintas’ Indianapolis facility employs over 100 “partners,” i.e., employees. The plant processes rental uniforms and floor mats. It also distributes restroom and hygiene supplies, first-aid services and promotional products for businesses across central Indiana, the reports said.  

The naming of Cintas’ Indianapolis plant as a STAR site makes it one of 38 company facilities that have achieved this highest honor from the VPP program. Cintas operates 377 facilities nationwide, the reports said.
