Independent Auditor Rates Garaventa Lift on “5S”

Peter_and_AngeloAugust 27, 2014

Angelo Sahagun shows off his work area to Peter Rice, an auditor who is conducting an independent audit of every work station at Garaventa Lift, including all of the offices. He is looking for conformance to the principles of “5S” – sort, simplify, sweep, standardize and sustain.

Each department is rated on each of the 5 elements using a five point scale. Every work station, every department, and the company as a whole are all expected to show significant continuous improvement.

The scoring criteria for every element are posted in all departments, along with the most CR_5S_Boardrecent audit results and action items to be completed in order to increase the score for the next audit. Weekly¬† “walk around” inspections ensure that the program remains a top priority.
