5S Master Class

There is nothing more important in the lean toolkit than 5S to establish and maintain the lean culture of a company.

Put simply, successful lean companies consider 5S the basis for all improvement. It sets in place standards and rules that are critical for higher level improvement activities and innovations. It heightens the awareness of all employees in regards to safety, quality, efficiency, cost and time. But it is its tangible contribution of reducing waste through visual control, error-proofing and decreasing the frequency of equipment breakdowns that really impacts on quality, efficiency and cost reduction.

Join this one-day master class to see how 5S can become a powerful management tool in your workplace. Learn through examples from some of the leading lean organisations in the world. Take away ideas and strategies that will assist in strengthening your organisation’s foundations for continuous improvement.
