What is 5S5S

The 5S Initiative stands for Seiri (organizing), Seiton (tidying), Seisou (sweeping clean), Seiketsu (keeping clean), and Shitsuke (discipline), organized from easy to hard by the level of difficulty and mastery. For this reason, it is said that a workplace where the 5S are implemented thoroughly has a top management standard.
The 5S help to reduce unnecessary work and excess inventory, and to create a safe and efficient work environment.
