Compensation and Benefits Report

The TRSA Plant Employee Compensation Report quantifies differences in pay and benefits between various types of linen, uniform and facility services operations for the range of exempt and non-exempt positions in the industry. Companies are classified similarly to the TRSA Industry Performance Report, enabling readers to contrast the offerings of specialists (healthcare, hospitality, industrial, mixed) and local, regional and national operations.

Newly Updated!!

TRSA’s Human Resources Committee reviewed the TRSA Plant Employee Compensation study and recommended updates to the survey to make it more current and more likely to be filled out by human resources (HR) departments. For example, revising the survey to include salary and hourly rates in ranges, instead of exact numbers, allows more HR managers to be able to complete the survey.

Other updates to the survey included expanded Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) questions including growth measurement of DEI programs and questions on flexible work schedules, like remote work options and varying eight- and 10-hour work days.

Safety Report

The TRSA Safety Report allows participants to benchmark their occupational injury and illness data to measure progress in establishing and implementing enhanced management and safety practices to reduce and eliminate occupational injuries and illnesses by highlighting the industry’s highest risk areas, as well as these most cited by OSHA. These SafeTRSA efforts have led to the adoption of proven policies and procedures for maintaining equipment (lock-out, tag-out), handling soiled linen (especially blood-borne pathogens) and working in confined spaces.

TRSA’s Safety Report indicates that TRSA members perform better in workplace safety than the linen and uniform supply (LUS) industry as a whole in two key metrics such as days away from work, job restriction or transfer (DART rate) and total recordable injuries and illnesses (TRIR).

Industry Sustainability Report

The TRSA Industry Sustainability Report fosters comparison with industry colleagues on water and energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, evaporation credits and a dozen other sustainable business practices. Data guides linen, uniform and facility services laundries in improving economies, key to increasing efficiencies and maintaining competitiveness. Median performance is reported by line of business and all respondents. This report is for TRSA members only.

 

Persistent drought in U.S. regions has heightened interest in water usage – especially among legislators and regulators at the state and federal level. In the nation’s capital, regulators are implementing rules and regulations pertaining to reduction in energy usage and stationary-source emissions.

Federal EPA has long reached out to TRSA regarding the industry’s water use and energy consumption. Policy makers at all levels are increasingly aware of the textile services industry as a source of environmental impact.

TRSA’s Industry Sustainability Survey highlights the commercial laundry industry’s positive efforts in part to protect the industry from unnecessary regulatory involvement from federal and state policy makers.  Derived from the previous Laundry ESP program, this effort is more targeted and it’s easier for laundries to submit data.

The TRSA Industry Sustainability Survey benchmarks the commercial laundry industry’s success in reducing water and energy demand to process laundry. Results are used to compare this progress against other industries’ conservation performance to show that the commercial laundry industry should not be regulated to reduce water and energy consumption.

TRSA member and nonmember operators are welcome to participate. For more information, email John MacKay at john@mackayresearchgroup.com or call 720.890.4255.
