Eliminate the causes of unsafe workplace conditions with this unique 5S approach!

Need a way to quickly and easily start a safety program or to reenergize your safety efforts? Poor safety conditions exist in all plants. They are inherent to the manufacturing industry itself. Slippage can occur from water or grease on the floor. Fires can occur from oil or chemical leaks. Mobile equipment can cause accidents of all kinds. Employees are safe and productive only when their work environment is safe. Now you can use the basics of 5S - organization, orderliness, cleanliness, standardized clean-up, and self-discipline - as a simple, proactive and inexpensive way to solve safety problems in the workplace.

An uncluttered, well-organized, and understandable workplace is the foundation for safety. 5S for Safety: New Eyes for the Shop Floor is a set of universal principles and activities that sustain safe conditions on the shop floor. The 5S for Safety video program focuses on improving unsafe and hazardous conditions that exist before an accident has occurred. It is this pre-accident view that makes 5S for Safety a preventive approach. 5S for Safety uses a unique method - the safety scan - to diagnose the causes of accidents. Based on that analysis, it then draws on standard 5S techniques and OSHA guidelines to identify, implement, and standardize "best practices"for shopfloor conditions. What's more, 5S for Safety doesn't stop with making your workplace a safer place. It will make it an efficient, more productive place as well. While improving safety, you'll also be fostering efficiency and continuous improvement in your company's operations. 5S stops the conflict between safety and profit, because when you use the 5S approach, you will increase productivity and profits while you improve safety.

Safety should be the number one concern in any manufacturing environment. The 5S system is gaining status in America because it works easily and quickly! These fast-paced, hard-hitting videos and guide will convince you that you can't wait for another accident, or even another "near miss" to begin eliminating unsafe conditions.
