Cincinnati-based Cintas Corp. was hit with another $196,000 in fines for safety violations at its Mobile, AL, location, bringing its total OSHA fines to more than $3 million in just three months.
The uniform supply company previously was cited for $2.78 million following the death of a worker from Tulsa, OK, plus $117,000 for violations in Ohio and $13,650 for violations in Washington. OSHA said the Mobile facility presented many of the same violations as the Tulsa plant, including electric shock hazards and inadequate machine guards.
Cintas President and CEO Scott Farmer said safety is a top priority, and that the worker’s death at Tulsa and a worker’s injury in Washington have “shaken” the company.
