AmeriPride Services, a textile services and supply company said it received the SafeTRSA Innovation Award and the Clean Green Innovation Award for its efforts to improve plant safety and the environmental impacts of its operations.

The SafeTRSA Innovation Award recognizes a company or facility with an extraordinary approach to improving safety and the Clean Green Innovation Award recognizes novel approaches to increase sustainability, conserve natural resources and reduce environmental impact.

AmeriPride received the SafeTRSA Innovation Award for its work on reducing spontaneous combustion fires in its production facilities. It identified new fire prevention precautions that could be applied to their laundry practices.

AmeriPride also bagged the Clean Green Innovation Award for its work to gain efficiencies in water and energy conservation and adopt best management practices for reusing, reclaiming and recycling resources.

The work resulted in significant reductions in the usage natural gas, electricity and water and the company became the largest commercial laundry to receive TRSA’s Clean Green certification earlier this year.

AmeriPride’s comprehensive approach includes reducing fleet emissions and increasing fuel efficiency through the use of alternative fuel vehicles like; CNG, propane, electric, and hybrids, double-decker trailers, rerouting and telematics technology.

“These awards build our credibility in the industry and with our customers, and provide third-party validation that we are doing the right things to improve safety and reduce our impact on the environment,” said Eric Davis, Director of Environmental Health and Safety at AmeriPride.

AmeriPride is one of the largest uniform rental and linen supply companies in North America. Operating more than 115 production facilities and service centers, it provides linen, uniforms, floor mats, restroom products, facilities services and cleaning chemicals.

The Textile Rental Services Association (TRSA) is the only organization advocating fair, balanced regulation and pro-business tax, labor and energy policy for the $16-billion U.S. textile services industry that employs nearly 200,000 people at more than 1,500 facilities nationwide.

TRSA also provides professional development, benchmarking and training resources that increase productivity and efficiencies for companies that launder reusable textiles, which help businesses project a clean and attractive public image. (AR)
