    5S Continuous Improvement Training Course Reviews:

    "I came in to the coarse not knowing much about it, until the trainer provided me with plenty of knowledge and ways to be able to organise my work load to be more easy and efficient."

    "A huge benefit of the course was being able to hold it on site to where it was relevant to our own personal work environment and needs. It gave our team a better insight on how to improve and put into practice the 5S principles at the place they work everyday rather than attending a course in a meaningless environment to them.

    "I found the course really interesting, learning how to look at different processes with a different set of eyes will improve our workflow immensely."

    "Dawnielle was excellent. She mixed slideshows up with exercises and breaks and practical use of the knowledge she taught."

    Learn to reduce waste through a systematic application of 5S principles – Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain. This workshop teaches the basic 5S techniques and illustrates that its implementation immediately reduces waste and provides a cleaner, safer work environment.
