Does your place of work have materials and WIP all over the place, are tools constantly missing? Are their stacks of unread magazines or financial statements in boxes on the floor? Does everybody put things wherever they want to? If this sounds like your place of work, then the 5-S principle is a way to get in control and stay in control of workplace housekeeping and organization.

5S originated from Toyota with 5 Japanese words that start with “S”. 5S is a methodology for organizing, cleaning, developing and sustaining a productive and functional work environment which focuses on improving quality, safety, morale, productivity and efficiency.

The final outcome of 5S implementation is the marked improvement to the organization’s productivity, performance and profitability.
