  • SORT OUT what is in the area to determine what is needed, what can be stored elsewhere and what can be disposed of.
  • SET IN ORDER the area by determining a place for everything and putting everything in its place.
  • SHINE AND CHECK the area by giving it a thorough clean to set a new benchmark for cleanliness and to reveal the sources of dirt.
  • STANDARDISE the workplace by establishing standards and procedures to constantly maintain the standard of the area.
  • SUSTAIN the change through agreeing on processes to implement ongoing improvements and audit results. This establishes a culture of continuous improvement.
