Everything You Need to Know About 5S
Tony Ferraro, a friend and fellow blogger, at Creative Safety Supply has created a great resource for 5S. It is a single source to learn about 5S. Here is a link to the website: 5S Study and Research Page.
There are several sections to the page:
- What is 5S?
- Origins of 5S
- Why 5S?
- Employee involvement
- How to get started
- Common misconceptions
- Each step of 5S defined
- Understanding the sixth S – safety
- Tools for 5S
Tony reached out to many in the lean community to help build the page. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to give input into this great resource.
I would recommend it for anyone learning about 5S as a great place to understand what it is and how to get started with implementation. There are plenty of great visuals as well. Here is the link again: 5S Study and Research Page.
Take the 10 minutes to watch the lean parody posted on the page as well. It is very funny.
Great work, Tony!
