5S Training for Workplace Organisation

Published on 21 January 2020

What is 5S Training and how will it help my Workplace?

5S training is the key foundation pillar for any organisational change. It provides a cleaner, more organised and more efficient workplace. 5S can be applied to any work area, including offices, to instil a culture which encourages improvements.

The 5S Steps are:

  1. Sort (Seiri) – Elimination of unnecessary work items.
  2. Set In Order (Seiton) – Establishment of efficient and effective storage systems.
  3. Shine (Seiso) – Establishment of cleaning requirements and systems to quickly highlight issues.
  4. Standardise (Seiketsu) – Establishment of best practice as a standard process.
  5. Sustain (Shitsuke) – Strategy development to sustain best practice into routine. A place for everything, and everything in its place!
