The 5S (Plus Safety) Methodology

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).
