An Introductory Course to 5S: Workplace Organization

Posted by Nicole Vierzba on Tue, Jan 31, 2012
    • Improve organizational functions
    • Involve employees
  • Increase output

5S is known as the foundation of lean and process improvement efforts. It is an employee-level effort that utilizes a systematic approach to create order by eliminating inefficiencies and workplace disorder. What creates disorder?

5S allows individuals and organizations to identify wasted time, effort and costs that occur everyday yet they are perpetually overlooked. A 5S event consists of hands-on activities that allows individuals to have direct impact on their work environment.

Sort * Shine * Stabilize *  Standardize *  Sustain

Employees learn the necessary skills to transform their work environment by creating more order and eliminating the disorder causing frustration, inefficiency, disengagement and poor productivity. After 5S, the effectiveness of individuals, their department (or functional unit), immediately improves. This creates instantaneous return on investment. Most importantly, improvement efforts become infectious within the organization. Other employees want to create order within their work station and executives want to experience increased productivity gains.

In this orientation session, we will review how 5S works, provide before and after pictures of actual workplaces, and identify what is needed to implement this highly effective strategy. During this session, we will also discuss how your company may qualify for state funds to subsidize a 5S event.
