New Auditors Join Hygienically Clean and Clean Green Cert. Programs

The Hygienically Clean and Clean Green Certification Programs welcome seven industry professionals to serve as new auditors as part of TRSA’s Certification Program Enhancement Initiatives, according to a news release.

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 the course of two months, the auditors were assigned additional live and virtual training with current lead inspectors to gain greater knowledge and exposure of 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, Greenville, NC, 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,” said Samlane Ketevong, TRSA’s senior director of certification and accreditation.

“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,” said Joseph Ricci, TRSA presient & CEO. “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.”

Representatives from Hygienically Clean-certified plants had an opportunity to meet the new auditors and asked questions about the audit process directly to the auditors during a live webinar on March 19. Visit the auditors website to learn more about the auditors and their qualifications.
