As we all head towards the next quarter here at Protective Packaging with ambitions to strengthen our successes, the Engineering Department can’t fall behind. The engineering team have decided to take the initiative to further oil the wheels of this very successful business by beginning to implement highly recognised 5S principles. 5S is a basic fundamental, systematic approach for productivity, quality and safety improvement in all types of businesses.
5S focuses on:
- Having visual order.
What are the 5S’s?
- Sort –
The first step, making things clean and organized. This improves efficiency, helps increase quality, makes it simpler to spot problems and enhances productivity.
- Set –
Organize, identify and arrange everything in a work area.
- Shine –
Regular cleaning and maintenance
- Standardise –
Make it easy to maintain – simplify and standardize.
- Sustain –
Maintaining what has been accomplished.
As it proudly states in our logo ‘’Quality Is Everyone’s Business’’ it is absolutely essential to retain our excellent position within the market as the leading manufacturer of climatic packaging solutions. Following these simple steps, will result in happy staff and most importantly happy customers.
