Current Customer FAQs
If you didn’t receive all your uniforms this week, your garments are out of rotation. Missing the pick-up day last week means you will be short this week, because your uniforms are in the laundry.
With our Northern Uniform NU-Trak technology, we have a reliable record of when garments have entered and left our facilities. Contact our Customer Support Advisors to confirm if you can expect your missing uniforms on your next delivery.
Our Red Alert™ Tag system is the best way to communicate what needs to be fixed, so the uniforms are always up to standard. The Red Alert tag takes only moments to fill out, and can be found at the Northern Uniform Communication Board in your facility’s change room.
Look for the Communication Board hanging by the drop chute for dirty garments. Simply fill out the required information about your uniform, select the option that best suits the repair needed, and mark the general area of the repair in the garment diagram on the Tag.
If you need a hem or size change:
- Write down the required measurements
- Indicate if the change needs to be made to all your uniforms or just the one you are tagging
Finally, attach the tag to the uniform in need of repair, and place the uniform into the designated Red Alert Drop Chute, or give it to the Service Specialist directly. We will take care of the rest!

When your uniforms are delivered, the Northern Uniform Service Specialist will communicate with your facility’s key contact person. If there is a locker system at your facility, you will also be assigned a locker.
This locker will be labelled with your name, and the key will be either given to the company contact on site, or will be left in the locker keyhole with a note instructing you where to find the uniforms.
When your uniforms are ready, we assign your locker and the key will be with your facility’s key contact person.

Leave workplace dirt at work. Do not take uniforms home. We’re laundry experts, so please leave it to us to clean and maintain your uniforms.
Ask your supervisor to inform us of the change. After we have updated your status:
- If you quit the service: You have 14 days to turn in all your garments at no charge.
- If you transfer: Please bring the garments to the new location with you.
No. The RFID technology used by Northern Uniform is called “passive,” requiring an inactive chip. This is not a GPS tracker. It is only read by customized readers located in our production facility. The only information the chip stores is its own number. Please, do not remove the chips from the uniforms.
