Pictograms are an easy and direct way to communicate visually. Applying these visuals to a 5S program is essential to complete the foundational Lean technique that works to maintain a clean, logical workplace. By applying pictograms to 5S signage, employees in your facility will be able to find the equipment they need quickly and easily for cleaning, aid with operations, or help in the event of an emergency.
Pictograms can be used for anything! For example, use 5S pictograms for depicting where trash cans go, marking emergency shower locations, first aid kit locations, and more. No matter how you use these types of signs, they will for sure supplement your 5S program and are an excellent addition to an established floor marking system. Follow the 5S method of Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain, with these signs.
