The first step in 5S is to sort
Sort all the items in your facility using red tags and other sorting products from Seton. Sort is the first step in the 5S program, and sorting means more than just cleaning up your workspace. In 5S, the objective of sort is to get rid of any unused items and move items that aren’t frequently used into storage. The theory states that workers will be more productive if they keep items they use on a regular basis within arms reach. To discard unwanted items, use a red tag, which is a cross-over from the visual workplace theory. At Seton, we offer quality red tags, as well as 5S Red Tag Boards that help keep everything organized.
