Cintas’ Maple Grove, MN, rental facility recently was awarded Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) Star certification. "The partners at our location have worked very hard to achieve a high level of safety in our work," said General Manager Dave Marta. "That level of engagement from all working partners at Cintas is our greatest advantage in our business, overall."

The company is one of only 39 in the state to earn OSHA’s highest safety recognition, which requires on-going training, rigorous audits and collaboration between management and employee-partners.  "At Cintas our partners care deeply about each other and work closely together toward the common goal of every partner going home to their loved ones at the end of the work day safe and healthy,” said Rick Gerlach, sr. director of safety and health.

Maple Grove is Cintas’ 27th facility in four years to receive this designation. “We are extremely proud of our Maple Grove employee-partners and their managers for earning the esteemed OSHA VPP Star Award," said Gerlach. “We are proud to lead the way and look forward to mentoring neighboring companies to protect the safety and health of their employees and achieve safety excellence."
