Sustain your workplace organization with a 5s housekeeping checklist

In the workplace, it’s important to create an environment that is conducive to productivity and safety. With this 5s housekeeping checklist, you can follow five simple housekeeping principles, you can help your employees work more efficiently and productively.

To implement a successful 5S workplace, it is important to have an organized workspace. The general 5S Housekeeping checklist can help organize workspaces and make them safe, clean, simple, structured, and silent.

The checklist includes the following five principles:

  • Sort material systematically into bins according to its type (e.g., boxes for paper files; cans for food)
  • Keep the area surrounding your desk clear at all times
  • Remove unnecessary materials from your desk every day
  • Make sure drawers are closed properly and stacked neatly
  • Clear obstructions from walkways whenever possible

  • With Lumiform’s customizable checklist, you have access to several features. You can start your 5S inspection by defining the type of work and attaching a picture of the workspace before progressing with the 5S inspection. Evaluate each principle (sort out, set in order, shine, standardize, and maintain) then attach pictures of red-tagged items and allocate a place for all the materials required for your work.

    Please note that this checklist template is a hypothetical appuses-hero example and provides only standard information. The template does not aim to replace, among other things, workplace, health and safety advice, medical advice, diagnosis or treatment, or any other applicable law. You should seek your professional advice to determine whether the use of such a checklist is appropriate in your workplace or jurisdiction.
