HLAC reports great interest in Tool Kit

23 July 2019


The Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council (HLAC) reports great interest in its new HLAC Laundry Process Monitoring Tool Kit  (PMTK) at two recent major US events – The Clean Show, which took place in New Orleans on 20-23 June, and APIC 2019 - Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology in Philadelphia on 12–14 June.

HLAC's new PMTK validates the effectiveness of a laundry's processes by measuring the number of microorganisms found in a laundry on hard surfaces, in the air, on linen, in the water and on employee hands, according to a news release from HLAC.

Gregory Gicewicz, who heads the committee that developed the toolkit on behalf of HLAC, said: “Clearly, HLAC accreditation is making a difference for many in the industry. Visitors, HLAC-accredited and non-accredited alike, realised the value of a resource like PMTK to maintain and safeguard their standards in the name of hygiene and infection prevention.”
