TROY, Mich.– Cintas Corporation's Fire Protection facility in Troy, Michigan, received the Michigan Voluntary Protection Program (MVPP) Star award from the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) for workplace safety and health excellence.
MIOSHA Consultation Education and Training Division Director, Nella Davis-Ray, presented the MVPP Star Award plaque and flag to the Cintas Fire Protection staff in a celebration ceremony held on Jan. 17.
"MIOSHA is proud to recognize the commitment Cintas Fire Protection has placed on maintaining a company culture that promotes excellence in workplace safety and health," MIOSHA Director Bart Pickelman said. "Implementing best practices for increased employee safety and preventing accidents exemplifies a true commitment to safety among management and staff at this facility."
As the most prestigious safety and health award given in Michigan, Cintas Fire Protection becomes one of only 32 companies in the state with MVPP Star status.
Identifying best practices is vital to the MVPP continuous improvement process. Among Cintas Fire Protection's best practices are:
- Management commitment – Cintas Fire Protection in Troy, Mich. has created a culture where management is actively involved in the safety and health management system and partner (employee) input is continually sought and incorporated whenever possible. Safety is the first priority and is a consideration in all decisions. Partners are encouraged to report unsafe conditions and are empowered to stop work if they are uncomfortable or feel that a condition or situation is unsafe. Additionally, the Cintas safety and health program is reviewed annually by the corporate executive safety counsel. Site managers are expected to lead, manage and care for the partners. Employee involvement – Employees (partners) have several opportunities, including debriefs, one-on-one's and "Safety Blitzes" to interact with and provide input to management. Other opportunities for involvement in the safety and health management include safety committees, hazard identification, submitting safety leads, incident investigations, conducting safety training, performing safety inspections, participating in the Safety Blitz Program and submitting safety best practices. Before any partner participates in any of these activities they are trained and prepared to do so.
