During a recent seminar I conducted for AME on "How to Sustain 5S" I was asked "how do you handle using colored visual controls and standards for color blind employees?" What an interesting question. One audience member suggested that was one of the reasons OSHA incorporated striping for hazards. While this makes sense, it doesn't really address the non-hazard color coding companies use for standardizing lanes, zones, WIP, etc. 

Any thoughts on this? Has your company had to address this challenge and if so what did they do? 

Thanks for sharing.
