Need an Assessment?
One of the most popular aspects of IAHTM membership is its Peer Assessment and Evaluation review program. Upon request, a team of IAHTM members visits the facility of an existing member where upon – peer-to-peer – they share their challenges, experiences and expertise on virtually any operational or procedural matter. The outcome of this review process usually results in some form of recommendation from the team so the existing member can optimize his or her laundry’s performance.
