  6. 6. BENEFIT 3 Reduction in Accident Rates (cont.) 5S/6S focuses on being proactive and using preventative measures to avoid accidents and increase safety awareness through proper training, appropriate use of PPE, and posted safety materials.
  7. 7. BENEFIT 4 Increase in Inventory Control Inventory control seems like a small component of cost savings but it truly starts adding up when unnecessary storage is needed to house an overabundance of inventory. By reducing space requirements needed, certain costs such as storage fees and wasted workspace can be avoided.
  8. 8. BENEFIT 5 Enhances Employee Morale Keeping employees happy helps to keep a consistent team of reliable employees who know and understand their jobs.
