The 6S Methodology - Part Two

On today's Warehouse Safety Tips Wednesday - we'll be covering "The 6S Methodology - Part Two" - so stay tuned.

Welcome to Warehouse Safety Tips!

You can find the show notes to each episode, links to the information mentioned on the podcast, the social media platforms we're on, and anything else related to the podcast at WarehouseSafetyTips.com.

If you're a seasoned Podcast Listener - this podcast is going to be different from most you listen to.  It's based around exactly what the name implies - Warehouse Safety Tips.  And since the people in that industry are busy - we know time is money, so each episode will be as short and to the point as possible.

And now that all that is out of the way - let's get to the Podcast!

On last week's Podcast - we covered the 6S Methodology and the first "S" of it, Sort (Seiri).  Just to catch you up - that's where you sort and categorize items. 

In teasing this week's Podcast - we said we'd be covering Set In Order.  But we actually have two "S's".  So in addition to Set In Order, we're also covering Shine.

Setting In Order (Seiton) is organizing and arranging the items/equipment you use in the most efficient order.

The ultimate goal of this step is to make your work area and overall facility as organized, productive, and logical as possible.

If anything you're doing feels like it could be done in less time and/or fewer steps - then this step is more than likely one you'll want to revisit.

Shining (Seiso) in the simplest of terms is cleaning.

If you've ever worked at a location where there are multiple shifts and/or several staff members working in the same area - then you've more than likely experienced what it's like to work in an untidy area.

Even though hearing it can sometimes make you cringe - if you have time to lean, you have time to clean.

Cleaning will make your immediate area more pleasing.  In addition - keeping your area, tools, and equipment clean will help to prevent injuries and assist in overall maintenance. 

On our next Podcast - we'll cover the remaining "S's" - Standardize (Seiketsu), Sustain (Shitsuke), and Safety.

Until - then have a safe day!

Before moving on - here's a word from one of our sponsors.
