Safer storage with a 5s warehouse checklist

A 5S warehouse checklist improves the safety in your warehouse constantly. This can be achieved by eliminating waste from warehouse making. This template checks if floors, loading docks, and storage areas are freed from obstacles or blockages. Furthermore, forklift, materials, supplies, and boxes can be checked, in case they are stored in their proper places. Use Lumiform to assign corrective action to other workers and address areas for improvement and implement your warehouse management system.
