The 5S workshop kit offered everything we needed to conduct a thorough training seminar for our employees. We love the idea that everything was geared towards healthcare and made the training that more fun.

As more and more people are living longer, there is a growing need for healthcare. More nursing homes and assisted living facilities are being built in every city across the nation. The ratio of caregivers to patients is increasing due to the amount of time and work it takes to care for an individual. The methods of 5S are not only for manufacturing plants but is a growing need for healthcare facilities. Creative Safety Supply is now offering the 5S for Healthcare Workshop Kit that contains everything needed to conduct a 5S workshop “in a kit” to improve healthcare safety while reducing training time, search time, wasted time, and resources.
Safety is critical in any type of healthcare setting and the 5S workshop kit is the perfect solution to turn a poor organized health facility into an efficient and quality health facility. 5S is based on five major steps:
- Sort: Organizing and/or eliminating unnecessary material will increase healthcare efficiency by making it easier for any piece of equipment to be utilized.
- Set in Order: Placing items in order so everything has its place will improve the rate in which workers are able to get their work done.
- Shine: Cleaning up the workplace so employees and patients can move around freely without bumping into garbage or slipping on a spill that has not been cleaned up. This helps increase efficiency and helps to avoid unnecessary injuries.
- Standardize: Creating a uniform visual workplace by using visual cues, such as arrows, colors, and signs will allow for faster selection of equipment especially in emergency situations.
- Sustain: The effort to continue to implement the first four steps of 5S and maintain the methods into the future.
