5S is a practical methodology for organizing any given workplace, especially a shared workplace, and more importantly keeping it that way. By application of the simple rule – ‘a place for everything and everything in its place’ it prevents non-value added time in searching for workplace items – a common and frustrating occurrence in most organisations. It also allows for the effective sharing of common resources thus minimising the cost of same and ensures that if any item is missing from its designated location it is immediately obvious to all.

The key objectives of 5S are a highly organised, clean, visual, and efficient workplace. 5S begins by deciding what should be kept, where it should be kept, and how it should be stored. This decision making process is part of a team effort focused on the principles of standardisation incorporating process ownership in each employee.

Its origins are Japanese, and it is an integral element in the Lean Model but can also be implemented in its own right.

This one day workshop serves as an introduction to 5S and presents the concepts, tools, and techniques involved in its practical application using a series of easy to understand modules and exercises.
