The 5S (Plus Safety) Methodology - Sort

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 Mighty Line | 5S Warehouse Tape, Angles/T's, Label Protectors, Dots/Arrows/Footprints, and Signs can help you with ALL your sorting needs!

Our next blog post will cover the second "S" - Seiton (Set In Order).
