The Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council (HLAC) is accepting applications from qualified individuals who want to join its team of inspectors. Qualified applicants should be bilingual (French/English, Spanish/English); and candidates who speak English exclusively are also encouraged to apply.

HLAC is the nonprofit organization that inspects and accredits laundries processing textiles for hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare facilities.

Interested individuals should visit HLAC's website,; review the  Inspector Agreement; and complete the  HLAC Inspector Application, which is due July 10, 2018.

An HLAC inspector is an independent contractor – a laundry and textile professional with wide-ranging experience – whose sole responsibility is to conduct a one-day, on-sight inspection of a healthcare laundry seeking HLAC accreditation. Inspectors receive in-depth training of HLAC Standards and inspection guidelines before they begin their work.

Inspectors are not HLAC employees. As independent contractors, they are paid per the inspection plus they are reimbursed for their travel expenses.

Individuals chosen as HLAC inspectors must attend a mandatory Inspectors Training session on November 12, 2018.
