The Benefits of Northern’s P.A.S.S. | Food Program

Protective Apparel Safety System​

Northern Uniform offers a unique program designed to streamline costs and provide full documentation for the development and maintenance of food safety workwear.

Our P.A.S.S. | Food program is a verified and traceable, fully documented, and third-party audited process. 

Our ISO 22000:2018 registration covers services provided under this program, which is a significant enhancement to a standard uniform service.

Northern's P.A.S.S. | Food Program

Every P.A.S.S. | Food garment that passes through our plant is distinguished by a yellow-backed barcode. This identifies each garment as a P.A.S.S. program piece, which allows us to recognize them at a glimpse and handle the garment according to our ISO 22000 procedures. This, coupled with our RFID systems, enables tracking and managing of inventory like no one else can offer.

We verify that our P.A.S.S. | Food garments are allergen free by conducting random protein swabs of every food safety delivery.
