protective products (PPE), today introduced its Cintas Safety Center solution,
a PPE cabinet that offers a comprehensive suite of head-to-toe safety
solutions as well as a managed program to protect employees on the job and
ensure workplace compliance. The cabinet and service is ideal for
organizations of all sizes that require PPE and want to better manage

“The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers
not only provide the proper PPE, but that they also train employees in its
use, maintain it and periodically review their PPE program to update it,” said
Tommy Thompson, Vice President of Sales for Cintas First Aid & Safety and Fire
Protection^1. “The Cintas Safety Center is a comprehensive PPE solution that
enables safety managers and their organizations to have the right products in
their facility delivered, stocked and maintained in order to keep their
employees safe and their businesses compliant.”

The Cintas Safety Center is the premier S.A.F.E. service solution for PPE:

  *Single-source PPE provider – Cintas can stock a wide variety of
    head-to-toe PPE within the cabinet, such as protective apparel, eye, head,
    hand and hearing protection. Specific products include gloves, hard hats,
    ear plugs, glasses and goggles, dust masks, face shields, respirators and
  *Adaptable program – With the Cintas Safety Center, employers can develop a
    customized PPE service program that meets their specific safety needs.
    Organizations can easily adjust the type and amount of PPE delivered as
    employee count and job responsibilities and hazards change.
  *Five-star service – Experienced field representatives manage inventory
    levels so that organizations always have PPE in the correct sizes on site.
    This encourages workers to wear PPE and also ensures compliance with
    safety regulations. Cintas also checks that the cabinet is organized and
    centrally located within the workplace.
  *Exclusive partnerships – Cintas has exclusive partnerships with trusted
    industry leaders in PPE so that organizations can select high-quality PPE
    for their workforce. Cintas also offers a comprehensive suite of PPE

Cintas also supports safety programs with a comprehensive suite of blended
training solutions. Employers can choose from instructor-led training, online
interactive training and DVD compliance programs to tailor training to the
varied learning styles of employees.

“It’s not enough for organizations to purchase PPE and distribute it to
workers,” added Thompson. “Safety managers should enlist the help of a trusted
safety provider that can manage the program by overseeing inventory of all
essential products and providing safety training for workers to stress the
importance of wearing PPE.”
