Attorney’s for Cintas Corp. claim that the worker who fell into an industrial dryer and died in 2007 “consciously disregarded his training.”
Court filings this week in Tulsa federal court state that the worker received safety training and understood the correct process on how to clear laundry jams. The worker’s widow is suing Cintas. She claims plant managers encouraged her husband and co-workers to climb onto conveyors to dislodge clumps of clothes to move them into dryers. Cintas is asking for summary judgment without a trial.
