5S Training Course

5S Training

5S is the name of a workplace organization methodology that uses a list of five Japanese words that when translated into English, they all start with the letter "S".

The list describes how to organize a work space for efficiency and effectiveness by identifying and storing the items used, maintaining the area and items, and sustaining the new order. The decision-making process usually comes from a dialogue about standardization which builds a clear understanding among employees of how work should be done. It also instills ownership of the process in each employee.

The 5S's are:

  • Sorting
  • Systematizing
  • Sweeping
  • Sanitizing
  • Self Discipline
