Auditors Join Hygienically Clean, Clean Green Programs

Seven industry professionals part of TRSA’s Certification Program Enhancement Initiatives

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — TRSA, the association for linen, uniform and facility services, reports that seven auditors have joined the Hygienically Clean and Clean Green Certification Programs as part of its Certification Program Enhancement Initiatives.

On Jan. 22-23, the new auditors gathered for an initial in-depth training session held in Las Vegas, which included a comprehensive review of the Hygienically Clean and Clean Green standards followed by mock Healthcare, HACCP programs and Clean Green audits. 

Following the initial training, over two months, the auditors were assigned additional live and virtual training with current lead inspectors to gain greater knowledge and exposure to the processes involved in carrying out the audits.

The audit process validates that plants meet established Hygienically Clean and Clean Green standards which includes evaluation of critical control points and ensures that employees are trained and protected, managers understand legal requirements and the physical plant operates effectively and is OSHA-compliant.

To ensure third-party validation, long-time executive Rudi Moors, owner of Beyond Washing LLC in Greenville, North Carolina, will manage the certification auditors and process through a partnership with TRSA.

“The addition of Rudi and the new auditors exemplifies our dedication to enhancing and refining our certification initiatives to maintain our leadership in the linen, uniform and facility services market,” says Samlane Ketevong, TRSA’s senior director of certification and accreditation. 

Joseph Ricci, TRSA president and CEO, says, “As we transition into this next phase, it is imperative that we acknowledge the invaluable contributions of Bob Corfield and the Laundry Design Group team. 

“Bob’s dedication and commitment over the past decade have been instrumental in shaping the Hygienically Clean programs into the largest and most recognized certification program in the industry.”
