The HLAC Board of Directors has interviewed and approved a select few professionals in the healthcare laundry industry to act as inspectors. They are not employees of HLAC, but are independent contractors who have wide-ranging experience in the industry, and are distinguished in skill, temperament, and integrity. The Council provides in-depth training in our Standards and our inspection guidelines before allowing the inspectors to begin their work.
HLAC takes great care to ensure that each inspection is objective and fair. The inspector may not already be a consultant to or affiliated with the laundry to be inspected, and may not use the inspection process to arrange future work with the laundry. Failure to follow this protocol will result in the inspector being dropped from further work with HLAC, and the facility will not be accredited.
