If you enjoy a clean, well-organized job site (this also improves morale and productivity) but haven’t yet found a way to sustain this – you’ve come to the right place.

Lean 5S, commonly referred to as workplace organization, is a foundational element in the Toyota Production System and a common starting point for Lean adoption. During this interactive session, attendees will learn what each of the five S’s mean and how to systematically apply each, one-by-one.

We will explain how to apply in the field, warehouse, and fab shop. The instruction will include plenty of relevant photos, testimonials, and tools – allowing you to be ready to experiment immediately. We’ll explore how to use 5S as part of visual controls (a.k.a. visual workplace, visual factory). The instruction will also include simulations to show you first-hand how powerful 5S is.

Most importantly, attendees will see how 5S leads to a safer workplace. In fact, some companies use 6S, where the sixth S is for safety. While our industry has made great progress to improve safety, there are few programs that manage to improve safety while also dramatically improving the flow, quality and speed of work…5S does it all!
