5S is concerned with the elimination of the '7 wastes' by the introduction of world class workplace organisation, visual management and immaculate housekeeping.

What are the 7 Wastes?

By reviewing just 7 wastes in our organisation, we can account for over 80% of the waste we are likely to find in an office environment. Office 5S can help to address this waste and either reduce it significantly or eliminate it all together.

This one day 5S in the Office training course is ideally suited to personnel from all disciplines in an office environment.

  • Identify the 7 Wastes in their own working environment
  • Understand the benefits of working in a 'clutter' free environment
  • Recognise 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 'sustainability'
