A business that is successful is usually on some type of lean and safety program. 5S is one type of program that is part of the Kaizen Solutions to running a lean facility. Creative Safety Supply is now offering 5S Red Tags as a system and method to identify items that are found in the workplace, but their immediate use and need are not projected. The red tags make it easy to stay organized throughout the red tag process and the bright red tags are easily visible, allowing items to be quickly identified as tagged items.
Everyone and all types of business benefit from having a 5S program. Industrial and manufacturing plants come to mind first; however, any type of business, from a retail store to a power plant, from hospitals to television stations, and all areas within a business, will realize benefits from using 5S red tags. Red tags will do what the five steps of what a 5S program is all about. The first step is Sort, and the red tags will help by marking the items that need to be cleaned up and organized. Step two is Set in Order and the red tags will help to organize, identify and arrange items in a work area. Step three is Shine and the red tags will promote regular cleaning and maintenance. Standardize is step four and the red tags help with maintaining, simplifying and standardizing. The final step is Sustain and by using red tags a business will have maintained and accomplished its goals.
A plant manager commented about 5S Red Tags, “The Red Tags worked great when we had to organize our facility. It made the project more efficient and streamline.”
