How Actionplas Can Help You Implement 5S Methodology

02 September 2016

5S is a workplace organisation technique to ensure maximum efficiency and safety in the work environment.

ActionPlas 5S coins

It focusses on organising and storing tools and equipment, identifying extraneous equipment and continuing a state of order in the workplace.

The 5S’s each stand for a key process:

  • Sort: Divide items in the workplace into 3 categories; retain, return and rid
  • Set in Order: Find a place for everything and put everything in its place. Organising, arranging and storing equipment, materials and information
  • Shine: Cleaning the workplace and maintaining its appearance daily. Establish and implement preventative measures to reduce ongoing cleaning
  • Standardise: Maintain and make standard “Sort”, “Set in Order” and “Shine” so that they become habitual in your workplace and part of the regular work routine
  • Sustain: Ongoing application of knowledge, skills and abilities gained from the 5S Process in order to enact organisation wide effectiveness
