OSHA certifies Tualatin Cintas for workplace safety

Location receives VPP Star recognition


The Cintas Corp. location in Tualatin was recognized this week with the Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Administration's highest honor for promoting safety and health in the workplace.

Cintas in Tualatin received Voluntary Protection Program Star certification. Oregon OSHA describes VPP on its website as “a cooperative compliance program … designed to recognize and promote effective safety and health management and to provide candidates with a mechanism for obtaining a desired performance.”

Twenty businesses throughout Oregon are listed as VPP participants. Cintas says it is now the 21st.

“Eliminating workplace injuries is the most important requirement for earning VPP Star,” said Rick Gerlach Sr., the company's director of safety and health, in a press release. “We could not have achieved this without the commitment from the local management and front-line employee-partners.”

Cintas is headquartered in Cincinnati. It produces a wide range of products, including restroom supplies, first aid materials and fire protection systems.

The Tualatin office of the company is located at 10754 S.W. Manhasset Drive. It was previously located in Beaverton.
