Adherence to Industry Standards
Metro Linen follows the guidelines set forth by the Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council (HLAC) and the Textile Rental Services Association (TRSA) to ensure our services are in line with the best practices in the industry. These standards govern every aspect of our operations, from the handling and transportation of soiled linens to the laundering process, packaging, and delivery of clean linens.
Strict Hygiene and Sanitation Protocols
In the healthcare industry, cleanliness is crucial. That’s why Metro Linen adheres to strict hygiene and sanitation protocols to minimize the risk of infection and cross-contamination. Our laundering process involves the use of EPA-registered disinfectants and detergents, which are specifically designed to eliminate bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens from linens.
Proper Handling and Transportation of Linens
At Metro Linen, we understand that proper handling and transportation of linens are crucial to maintaining compliance. We provide clearly labeled, leak-proof containers for the storage and transportation of soiled linens to our laundry facility. Our delivery trucks are also equipped with separate compartments for clean and soiled linens to prevent cross-contamination.
Compliance with OSHA and HIPAA Regulations
As a medical linen and uniform service provider, Metro Linen is fully compliant with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations. We follow OSHA’s Bloodborne Pathogens Standard, which outlines the precautions that protect employees from exposure to blood and other potentially infectious materials.

We have adopted eco-friendly practices, including the use of energy-efficient equipment and environmentally friendly cleaning products. Our water recycling system allows us to reduce water consumption, while our heat reclamation technology helps us reduce energy usage.
