CINCINNATI, January 24, 2011 — Cintas Corporation (NASDAQ: CTAS) today announced an opportunity for businesses to improve the safety of employees behind the wheel with a Free Online Defensive Driving Awareness Training Offer through February 28, 2011.
In an effort to reduce costs and increase driver productivity for businesses, the training offer will focus on safe driving practices and distractions that may cause drivers to lose focus, including multi-tasking while driving and busy schedules.
