Quality & Risk Management

A decision to appoint Linen Services Australia for your supply of linen services is a major commitment that brings with it expectations about the quality of service delivery. The Quality Management System is based on a Continuous Value Improvement Program (CVIP) and combines policies, procedures and work instructions that are customised to your operating environment rather than the business being made to ‘fit’ the requirements of the quality plan.

The current quality management program is based on the AS/NZ ISO 9000:2015 family of standards.
Compliance with AS/NZS 4146:2000 Laundry Practice. In Australia and New Zealand, the general laundry practices and requirements are detailed in the standard AS/NZS 4146:2000. This standard is intended to provide laundry operators with a common reference to acceptable laundry performance.

The Linen Services Australia laundry facilities comply with, but are not limited to, the following key components in the AS/NZS 4146 standard:
Chemical Disinfection
Independent Certified Wash Formulas
Segregation (cross contamination prevention)
Independent EMPA (supports wash formula testing)
