Cintas plant awarded for outstanding safety record

Cintas Corporation’s Macomb facility received the CET Silver Award from Michigan OSHA (MIOSHA). The plant was recognized for working a year without a lost time accident. Among other achievements, the Macomb plant:

  • Developed and implemented a comprehensive safety and health management system;
  • Established a health and safety committee with employee and management participation;
  • Developed an employee training system; and
  • Worked diligently to change workplace culture to reflect the importance of job safety.

The Macomb site employs 118 workers. Cintas provides employee uniforms, restroom supplies, safety products, and other services to some 700,000 businesses. The award is given by the state’s Consultation, Education, and Training (CET) Division.

MIOSHA Deputy Director Bart Pickelman noted, “Companies that establish an integrated safety and health system reap the benefits of significantly reducing their injury and illness rates. Reducing these rates not only protects employees—it has a healthy impact on a company’s bottom line.”
