5S – Sort
5S Red Tag Technique
The first “S” in the 5S System is “Sort” which means to sort through and sort out. Tag items in your work area that are no longer needed to help clear the area of clutter. A quick thumb rule is – if you are not going to use it in the next 30 days then move it out of the immediate work area. Clearing unneeded items out of the immediate workspace is the first step to having control over your area. The 5S Red Tag identifies: the item, who moved it, the date it was moved and the reason it was moved (such as: not used here, obsolete, capital item not needed, broken and so on). Other information can be written on the tag as needed. Then, move your tagged items to the Red Tag Holding Area for disposition. The Red Tag Holding Area is a temporary area where items can be held until the disposition is made such as: keep, recycle, donate, sell, etc.
The professional looking tag helps your team take 5S seriously and is part of the 4th “S” in 5S – Standardize and the 5th “S” Sustain. Have plenty of these tags handy and available so you can red tag anytime by using a 5S Red Tag Station. The 5S Red Tag will continually remind us that we need to be vigilant so that items do not clutter our work areas.
Remember the slogan for Sort, “When in doubt, move it out.”
