A few volunteers in Business Office of Iowa Prison Industries participated in an office 5S event to improve our office supply storage space and reduce waste. 5S is an organizational tool used to eliminate waste and provide a place for everything and a system to keep everything in its place!
Some of the benefits we are enjoying now because of our 5S event are:
- Staff learned about 5S and the benefits of implementing it
- More space was made available for the things we need to stock
- Items are labeled and quick to identify saving time
- Obsolete items were removed
- Red tagged items were shared with others that could utilize them
- Saving money
