Floor Tape Blog
As discussed in our previous blog post - The 5S (Plus Safety) Methodology - we're going to be covering each "S" that makes up the methodology.
Today, we'll be covering the first "S" - Seiri (Sort).
Sorting can involve many things, including - but not limited to the following.
- Removing waste - both actual refuse and/or items that don't belong in an area.
- Having management/supervisors continually check/inspect the area to assure everything's in order.
- Assuring any obstacles that could interrupt work are removed.
How can 5S Warehouse assist with this?
- Marking off areas such as "Red Tag Areas" (Items that are ready to be removed)
- Creating specific areas for pallets, pallet jacks, tow motors, and other equipment.
- Making sure all areas you can be and can't be are labeled.
- Having tow motor paths clearly marked.
- And much more!
Our next blog post will cover the second "S" - Seiton (Set In Order).
In one of our previous blog posts - we covered "The Meaning Behind the 5S Name". In the next 6 blog posts - we're going to cover the 5S Methodology piece by piece.
We're even going to up size it one for you to 5S + Safety.
As a workplace organization method - 5S originated from the 5 Japanese words - each beginning with "s" - seiri (sort), seiton (set in order), seiso (shine), seiketsu (standardize), and shitsuke (sustain). And of course the bonus "s" of safety.
All of these contribute to keeping an organized, safe, and productive workplace.
The mantra of properly organized 5S Methodology is, "A place for everything, and everything in its place."
Imagine how much smoother you could perform your duties - if everything you needed was always in the correct place and ready to use.
In many workplaces - the 5S Methodology is the first lean method implemented.
Our next blog post will cover the first "s" - seiri (sort).
