Learn how to use the 5S process improvement approach to organise and improve productivity within a workplace, with our 5S training course.

This 1-day course explains how removing ‘wastes’, such as unnecessary inventory, movement and over-processing, can greatly improve efficiency in processes and tasks. It further explores how one’s contribution towards maintaining a 5S approach can help others improve their own efficiency, supporting the increased competitiveness of their organisation.

On completion of the course students will understand the concepts, application and benefits of the 5S toolset, and why it is one of the easiest first steps to establishing a Lean culture.

All delegates receive a certificate on completion of the course.

This course is suitable for anyone involved in improving the efficiency of their workplace, regardless of their industry, including operators, team members, managers, improvement specialists and directors.

  • 5S introduction and background
