News #6 : Let’s talk about quality!
5S internal audits
5S audits are now back in the workplace. The 5S management method allows for efficiency in the workplace and a smooth flow of operations.
The 5S‘s are the following:
• Sort; sort items at a given workstation
• Set in order; Determine a place for each work tool so that you can find what you need when you need it
• Shine; clean the workstation
• Standardize; establish work methods and ensure that they are followed by all those working in the same area
• Sustain; integrate rules related to the 5S method so that it is maintained
The 5S method is not yet present everywhere. Once the process is mastered in our production plants and laboratories, we will implement it in the other departments of the company.
The results of the audit are as follows:
The goal is to achieve 5S mastery throughout the company!
