Welcome to 5S Workplace Organization!

In this course, you will learn the methodology of the 5S Workplace Organization that consists of Sort, Set, Shine, Standardize and Sustain. The 5 S methodology when implemented effectively in the laboratory, will assist to consistently maintain a visual, organized and orderly workplace. A successful event requires planning, preparing and executing 5 S in the laboratory. In addition to an orderly laboratory, we discuss 5 S Workplace Organization as a Lean philosophy. The 5S culture becomes a part of the “way we work around here” and serve as the ground work to prepare for a continuous improvement initiative. We will discuss team participation and the importance of gaining the assistance of the people that actually work in the area of focus. You will learn the importance of  maintaining weekly compliance, audits and follow-up activities by implementing processes that allow consistent documentation.

5 S description in comparison to the Japanese term is as follows:

  • Seiri / Sort: Sort what is necessary from the unnecessary
  • Seiton / Straighten and set in order
  • Seiso / Shine: Clean the laboratory
  • Seiketsu / Standardize the approach to everyday organization
  • Shitsuke / Sustain by implementing standard practices of auditing and accountability

This course will prepare you to develop, plan, recruit and implement 5 S workplace organization in all areas of your laboratory or in your own home!
