BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (PRWEB) December 11, 2020
Gallagher Uniform, an innovative family-owned and operated uniform, towel, and mat rental supplier in West Michigan, Ann Arbor/Detroit, and northern Indiana, recently received the Hygienically Clean Certification for Food Safety by the Textile Rental Service Association (TRSA).
The Hygienically Clean Certification is only achieved by organizations dedicated to stringent cleanliness and operational standards for every associate. This achievement validates the company’s use of best management practices and evaluation of critical control points through the entire facility. This commitment is verified by on-site inspection and their capability to produce hygienically clean textiles as quantified by ongoing microbial testing, as stated by TRSA.
This certification confirms the laundry’s dedication to compliance and processing garments and linens using best management practices and is awarded to linen and uniform companies that are committed to workplace safety by ensuring all products and services achieve the highest level of efficiency, cleanliness and environmental protection.
Achieved through a comprehensive facility inspection, three unique rounds of microbial testing and regular quarterly and semi-annual testing, this certification reflects Gallagher Uniform’s commitment to BMPs in laundering. The inspections must confirm that employees are properly trained and protected, that managers understand legal requirements, that the facility is OSHA-compliant, and that the physical plant operates effectively. The process also involves hazard analysis, monitoring Critical Control Points, validating HACCP system effectiveness, and documenting conformance.
“Gallagher is thrilled to have met such specific and high-level standards,” said John Gallagher, President of Gallagher Uniform. “This yearlong journey includes multiple facility inspections, garment testing, and facility upgrades but proves that Gallagher is committed to providing the highest level of service to our customers.”
Gallagher joins the list of Food Safety Certified businesses recognized by the TRSA and also holds the TRSA’s Clean Green certification, reflecting their commitment to best management practices and environmental stewardship.
