Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardise, Sustain

5S is a workplace organisation method focused on eliminating waste.

It is a defined, visual and simple method for organising and maintaining the workplace in the optimum condition in order to eliminate waste.

Use 5s to:

  • Enable standardised process operation
  • Reduce Waste through good organisation
  • Easily identify abnormalities
  • Encourage teamwork
  • Build a foundation for further improvement activities.

Adopting 5S will ensure all clutter is removed; resulting in a safer working environment that everyone should be proud of. Only tools and materials actually required should be held within the work area, each having a designated location for quick retrieval and return.

Our ‘hands on’ training takes people on a journey through the 5Ss, from Sort to Sustain, enabling trainees to see the benefits first hand.
