What is a 5S Audits Checklist?

A checklist for 5S evaluates the introduction of the 5S method at your workplace. The five steps are: Seiri (sorting), Seiton (systematising), Seiso (cleaning), Seiketsu (standardising) and Shitsuke (self-discipline). The 5S Principles help to avoid waste and to create a safer and more effective work environment.

This article briefly explains:

1. What the 5s method entails

2. How to use the 5S method more efficiently using Lumiform

What the 5s method entails

  • Step 1: Sort (seiri)
    Organize your workplace by sorting through all items and get rid of anything which is not related to work. In this way, you are not only less distracted but you create more space and eliminate any obstacles or potential hazards.

  • Step 2: Set in Order (seiton)
    Establish fixed locations for each necessary item to reduce the time you or your employees search for tools. This ensures a smooth workflow during daily business. Make sure to place tags on specific items and place them in near proximity to the work area.

  • Step 3: Shine (seiso)
    Clean your work place and keep it that way. This helps to create a productive environment and ensures a clean and pleasant work area.

  • Step 4: Standardize (seiketsu)
    Develop a plan to ensure the upkeeping of the first three steps. Make sure that the workplace is frequently inspected, organized and cleaned.

  • Step 5:Sustain (shitsuke)
    It is crucial that you and your fellow employees not only assign a plan but also have the self-discipline to make conscious decisions around the workplace to keep it tidy and organized. A strong work ethic ensures a safe and productive workflow and environment.
