Do you want to be the slave of your working environment, or its master? Do you want your working area to help you to do your job, or to hinder your efforts? Do you want to be rushing to complete your tasks, or have time to take pride in them? 5S is a Workplace Organisation system that enables you to be the master of your work area, a work area that helps you to do your job instead of hindering you, so that you have time to take pride in your efforts. It is there to enable you to get each activity right the first time, every time. Don't get caught up in the message that 5S is a discipline of managers over workers. If you have been taught that, then the teacher didn't kw what they were talking about. 5S involves everyone, from directors to the guy who sweeps the floor. It benefits everyone. It depends on everyone. For the system to work, -one can hide. Everyone has to be involved, everyone has to contribute.
