5S Training Course

This one day 5S training course is ideally suited to personnel from all disciplines in a manufacturing environment. This is a highly interactive, practical course where delegates get the opportunity to manufacture ‘real’ products during the workshop to demonstrate what can be achieved by this lean tool.

By reviewing just 7 wastes in our business, we can account for over 80% of the waste we are likely to find in both an office and factory environment. These are non value adding factors which influence the effectiveness with which we carry out our daily tasks. 5S is a set of tools which form the bedrock of a continuous improvement culture – hence a good place to start for an organisation in the process of adopting a lean culture.

What you will learn?

At the conclusion of the 5S training course each delegate will be able to:

  • Identify the 7 Wastes in their own working environment
  • Recognise the main benefits of working in a ‘clutter’ free environment
  • Appreciate the usefulness of signage, colour and location as part of a visual management programme
  • Design and implement a 5S audit programme
  • Provide the right conditions for 5S ‘sustainability’
  • Generate a structured programme to eliminate waste
  • Implement a 5S review process
