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.


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


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


Create a standardised 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. Analyse 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 organisation of tools and equipment contributes to less workplace accidents and creates a higher level of employee morale and pride. Our Lean 5S Products UK Shadow Boards act as visual aids and encourage area cleanliness and workplace safety.


Clearing away waste and organising the most used tools and equipment efficiently on a Lean 5S Products UK 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 Lean 5S Products UK Mobile Shadow Board, cuts wasted motion and travel time, which increases productivity, and your bottom line.


The visual nature of Lean 5S Products UK 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, disorganised workplaces, which can foster lower morale among employees. When workplaces are clean and organised using Lean 5S Products UK Shadow and Production Boards, your employees are happier!


At Lean 5S Products UK we understand that Shadow Boards and Production Boards have optimum success when they support your needs and requirements.  We can provide a site visit to assess current working practices and to implement your needs.
