Business Benefit

5S is an organisational method describing how to organise a workspace. It is one of the most widely adopted techniques from the lean manufacturing toolbox. The main objective of 5S is to create a clean, orderly environment where there is a place for everything, and everything is in its place. 5S makes it easier for people to do this without wasting time.
This 5S Training is designed to provide knowledge on different elements of 5S. Topics covered include the numerous benefits of 5S, how to remove unnecessary items, equipment layout, storage methods, visual management, general cleaning, activity planning and resourcing. Delegates will also become familiarised with the concepts of red-tagging and auditing. By the end of this training, delegates will be able to maintain and improve standards and implement plan development.

Measuring The Success


The purpose of your training is learning new skills and/or changing behaviour. We can help you measure this!

To evaluate how successfully the attendees are doing this, delegates can attend a Workplace Implementation session during the skills transfer period. The cost of the session is £595+VAT delivered virtually and lasts for 2.5 hours.

During the Workplace Implementation session the individuals will either on a 1-2-1 basis or as a group discuss the challenges and successes they have experienced during their skills transfer period.
This will include what they are doing differently as a direct result of the training and how this has positively impacted the organisation.
This is an excellent way to encourage the learning, support the skills transfer into the workplace and act as a measure to evaluate the training.

We compile this information into a report so that you have evidence of your return on investment.
