Hygienically Clean Certification
Budget Uniform is Hygienically Clean certified by the Textile Rental Services Association (TRSA), a rigorous industry standard for hygienic uniform providers.
When it comes to your work uniform provider, you want to be on the same page about what “clean” really means. The Hygienically Clean certification was established by the Textile Rental Services Association (TRSA) to maintain consistency and quality of cleanliness throughout the textile and uniform rental industry.
Work uniform and laundering providers that hold Hygienically Clean Certification, as well as a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP) certification, can deliver on “clean” that leaves their customers assured of the highest-quality processes for safe and hygienic work uniforms.
What Does Hygienically Clean Mean for You?
The Hygienically Clean Certification ensures a rigorous standard of hygienic laundering backed up by third-party microbial and bacteriological testing, as well as facility inspections. At Budget, our processes follow both the strict standards of HACCP, as well as the Hygienically Clean Certification. When you work with a Hygienically Clean Certified work uniform partner, you can trust that the standards of cleanliness are consistent and thorough.
TRSA regulates all Hygienically Clean certified organizations to ensure that these standards are maintained, with third-party verification of internationally recognized standards.
How is “Hygienically Clean” Defined?
TRSA defines hygienically clean linens as free of contaminants such as harmful bacteria, mold, yeast, and more. The uniforms must not only appear clean and free of defects, but they must also pass microbial testing for germs, bacteria, and viruses.
For organizations in the healthcare or food industries, these standards are critical to the health and safety of employees and customers. The Hygienically Clean Certification includes on-site inspections to evaluate:
- Uniform upkeep practices
- Employee training and protection
- OSHA compliance
- Managerial understanding of certification requirements
- Third-party testing
- Hygienic operations
TRSA requires laundries to pass three rounds of microbial testing, as well as quarterly testing to ensure consistency in water quality, textile fabric composition, detergent chemistry, and more. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, such protocols are increasingly seen as a key step in maintaining workplace hygiene, health, and safety.
