Here is a list of good 5S standard practices taken from a fantastic new book from GBMP E2 Continuous Improvement System. 


  • Make it clear what is needed and what is not needed
  • Provide a means for red tagging and removing unneeded items on an ongoing basis
  • Establish guidelines for signage and meanings for colors used in work areas
  • Identify walk areas, dangerous conditions or danger zones
  • Clarify home locations for material, information, equipment and supplies
  • Outline expectations and frequency for cleaning and inspection activities in the area
  • Ensure tools and supplies for maintaining 5S are located and available
