Fundamentals of 5S in the Office

The 5S System for the Office involves 5 activities for establishing and maintaining a high performance office – ; Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardise, & Sustain. The meaning of these activities is summarised below.

  1. Sort involves sorting through the contents of an area and removing unnecessary items. “When in doubt, move it out”
  2. Set in Order involves arranging necessary items for easy and efficient access, and keeping it that way. “A place for everything and everything in its place”
  3. Shine involves cleaning everything, keeping everything clean, and using a way to ensure that the area and equipment is maintained, as they should be. “Make it clean and keep it clean”
  4. Standardise involves creating guidelines for keeping the area organised, orderly, and clean, making standards visual and obvious. “If you can’t see, you don’t know, and if you don’t know, you can’t control’
  5. Sustain involves education and communication to ensure that everyone follows 5S standards. “Maintain the gain and forget the blame”
