Cintas joins OSHA’s SHARP Program

Cintas joins OSHA’s SHARP Program
Cintas, a 27 employee company in Eugene, has become a member of the Oregon OSHA’s SHARP (Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program) last week.

Oregon OSHA announced that the Cintas Corporation of Eugene is the latest company to join the SHARP program, which helps employers in the state to work with and encourage employees to look for, find and correct hazards, and to develop and implement an effective safety program so as to improve continuously. There are nearly 70 companies in Oregon that actively participate in SHARP and since its inception, more than 90 have graduated.

Cintas is a Cincinnati based center that has about 27 employees in its Eugene branch, who are responsible for providing uniform rental services as well as bathroom and kitchen sanitation services. The company has recently stated that the SHARP program has helped them a great deal by strengthening the employee-customer relationships. The company believes that safety is a responsibility that should be taken seriously be everyone in the company.

Members of the SHARP program are not exempt from OSHA’s regulatory enforcement but they do have limited exemptions from inspections.
