Cintas Uniform’s Charlotte facility has been named recipient of the North Carolina Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (NCOSHA) Voluntary Protection Program’s Star Award.
It’s North Carolina’s highest recognition for exemplary occupational safety and health practices.
State Labor Secretary Cherie Berry noted, “Out of about 220,000 businesses in the state, only 137 companies have achieved the Carolina Star.” According to Berry, the state’s standards for the awards are more stringent than similar federal awards.
Last year, Cintas’ Charlotte shop achieved “Rising Star” status, but met the higher “Star” standard this year. It’s the first Cintas facility in North Carolina to win such an award, although eight Cintas plants in other states have won similar recognition.

NCOSHA claims companies that participate in the program generally experience 60% to 80% fewer lost-workday injuries than similar nonparticipating firms.
