What is 5S?

Developed by the Japanese, the 5s system organizes the workplace based on the 5 "pillars"


Remove unnecessary items from the work area. Attach removal tags to infrequently used items.


Customize the work area to improve efficiency. Keep important materials nearby. Implement visual organization to streamline workflow and improve efficiency.


Clean the work area, equipment and tools. Find and eliminate sources of contamination.


Create a standardized and consistent 5S workflow. Assign tasks and create schedules so that everyone knows their responsibility.


Ensure that 5S is a long-term, company-wide goal. Analyze results, hold team meetings and train workers on the importance of 5S.

Benefits of using our Shadow Boards in your Lean 5S Journey


The most efficient organization of tools and equipment contributes to less workplace accidents and creates a higher level of employee morale and pride. Our shadow boards act as visual aids and encourage area cleanliness and workplace safety.


Clearing away waste and organizing the most used tools and equipment efficiently on a shadow board, frees up space that can be used more effectively for expansion and higher profits.


Ensuring tools and equipment are close to hand on a mobile shadow board, cuts wasted motion and travel time, which increases productivity, and your bottom line.


The visual nature of our shadow boards clearly shows when an item is missing, or needs replacing or fixing which saves you money and helps prevent production slow down or stoppages.


Making it routine to implement proper procedures and discipline to avoid backsliding, is one of the main objectives of the 5S system. This practice improves the chances of avoiding dark, dirty, disorganized workplaces, which can foster lower morale among employees. When workplaces are clean and organized, your employees are happier!
