Congratulating Cintas Statesvilleby Representative Virginia Foxx
Posted on 2013-03-12
FOXX. Madam Speaker, congratulations are due to the entire Cintas
Corporation branch in Statesville, North Carolina, and to each of the
Cintas team members who worked together to earn OSHA's Carolina Star
distinction for their workplace.
This past week, I was honored to join the employees and management of Cintas Statesville and take part in the celebration of their shared achievement. The environment at Cintas was so impressive and collegial, I wanted to bring their story of success to Washington.
The Carolina Star Program considers more than just exemplary safety and health standards when it designates award winners. Companies are expected to show how they've built a culture where employees and management share the duties of keeping a safe workplace.
Every Cintas employee in Statesville takes ownership of this task, spotting and diffusing hazards together and teaching others to put safety first. Statesville's Cintas has an atmosphere of open dialogue and shared responsibility among all employees that sets it apart. Where collaboration, cooperation, and inclusion were weighed by the Carolina Star Program, Statesville's Cintas branch excelled.
Those are qualities that make for more than a safe workplace. They make for a good workplace and, in Cintas Statesville's case, a workplace that not only thrives but enables other businesses to thrive by providing key support services.
Again, congratulations to Cintas Statesville and their entire team on this achievement.
