No one likes to waste time when they're on the job. Workers want supplies to be easy to locate and ready to use. Workers want to move around the facility easily and not worry about getting injured because an area is disorganized. In Lean Manufacturing, 5S Audits offer a system for organizing spaces so work can be performed efficiently, effectively, and safely. 

5S principles help eliminate unnecessary items, time, movement, and inventory on a daily basis. The effort also improves workplace organization. Benefits of 5S Audits are more efficient operations and continuous improvements. The term 5S comes from five Japanese words:

  • 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 template helps assess the state of your 5S implementation, reduce unnecessary items and improve workplace organization. The 5S Audit app evaluates and scores key indicators in each of the five components of 5S on a daily basis. Each audit is automatically scored so that progress can be measured over time.
