Straighten For Safety

On today's podcast - we're going to be talking about the second S of the 5S Methodology - STRAIGHTEN. So stay tuned.

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!

Last week, we made the decision to focus on weekly episodes of each step within The 5S Methodology.  We started with the first S - which is SORT.  Sorting as it pertains to safety, is determining the things that are essential from the things that are not essential. 

This week we're moving on to the next S - which is STRAIGHTEN.  Straightening as it pertains to safety, is making everything that's essential easily and efficiently accessible.  In addition - it allows for a system of always knowing where those essential items are, who's using them, and where they go when no longer needed.  

Another phrase for this step is, SET IN ORDER.  So in addition to what was mentioned above - it also entails making sure items are organized by priority of use.

Following this step allows you to keep your tools available to those that need them when they need them the most.

Next week what we're going to be talking about is the next step, which is SHINE.  It goes beyond simply cleaning - and we'll make sure that we go through and cover that in detail next week.

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

If you've ever been to or worked in a warehouse - you know just how important safety is to both management and staff.  It's almost impossible to go 10 steps without seeing Safety Tape, Angles, Signs, and/or products.
