No one likes to waste time when they're on the job. Workers want easy-to-use, easy-to-locate tools that make their jobs easier, not harder. Workers also want to move around your facility easily,not worrying about potential injury due to a disorganized area. . In Lean Manufacturing, 5S Audits offer a system for visual management of work spaces so work can be performed efficiently, effectively, and safely.

5S principles help eliminate unnecessary items, time, movement, and inventory on a daily cadence. The effort also improves workplace organization as a whole. 5S Audits result in more efficient operations and continuous improvements. Derived from five Japanese words, the term 5s encapsulates:

  • Seiri (Sort) – Distinguishing between necessary and unnecessary processes and materials, and removing what is not needed
  • Seiton (Straighten) – Ensuring that all items are organized and in a designated place
  • Seiso (Shine) – Keeping the workplace and equipment clean and orderly
  • Seiketsu (Standardize) – Creating standard processes for organization and cleanliness of the workspace
  • Shitsuke (Sustain) – Sustaining the new processes and conducting audits to maintain adherence.

This free 5S Audit checklist template helps assess the state of your 5S implementation, reduce unnecessary items in working areas, and improve the working environment. The 5S Audit mobile app evaluates and scores key indicators in each of the five components of 5S in real time. Each audit process is automatically scored, so that progress can be measured over time.
