Kolkata learns Japanese workplace practice

Kolkata, Oct 13 (Calcutta Tube / IBNS) A two-day certification programme on the Japanese workshop practice 5S started at the Peerless Inn in Kolkata on Thursday.

5S has caught the fancy of progressive Indian industrial houses in recent years, and wherever it has been seriously and properly adopted, the results have been dramatic – in areas as important as Cost Reduction, Waste Identification & Control, Safety and Improved Customer Response Time.

5S is the foundational input for all Quality and Lean Initiatives in an organisation, and plays an important role in helping it secure an ISO, TPM or any other such Certification.

This programme is meant for Operating Managers at the middle and senior levels, with managerial or supervisory responsibilities and accountability for operating results in the areas of Production, Maintenance, Stores, Purchase, QA/QC, Sales, Marketing, Administration, Law, Human Resources, Finance and Accounts.

This programme, the 31st Public 5S Certification Programme, will be organised by The 5S Institute, Mumbai – the world’s first institute dedicated to providing training and implementation assistance in 5S. Established in 2005, The 5S Institute has trained more than 3000 persons from over 60 organisations, and now has more than 600 Certified Practitioners in India.

The 5S Institute has also implemented 5S in a wide variety of organisations in industries like Steel, Engineering, Chemical, Ceramic, Automobile, Banking, and even in two of the country’s major high courts.
