Exclamation 5s+1

I am currently working on setting up 5s+1 in our warehouse. Since Safety is #1, I decided to name it 5s+1 instead of 6s to ensure safety is always at the forefront of our audits. I am just getting this going and working on putting the team together to begin training and implementation. To gear up the staff to know what is coming, I send out 5s+1 Tips of the week out to all the staff via e-mail. It seems to be producing results already even though the staff really does not know the program fully. I'll let you know how this progresses. I found a great audit sheet on this forum that I have adapted to the 5s+1. I'll attach it. I'll send pictures when we get this rolling.

I have opened it and saved again for those having problems. It could be an Excel version issue. I have saved as Excel 95
Please give feedback

Our company has incorporated Safety into 6S years ago. Posters are used companywide to communicate the initiative. Also, on each shopfloor, information on recent accidents are detailed with photo to show to employees what has caused the incident and how s/he may has avoid it. No. of accidents are reported to top management regularly and procedure was setup showing employees how to react to accident. We have safety and 5S committee conducting audit from time to time. Nevertheless, there is nothing new. But by bringing out Safety as the 6th 'S', the company puts it to the same level of concerns as for 5S.

How do you isolate Safety as the 6th S?

I guess the way I look at it is that no matter what the topic or process is, 5S applies. Safety is not an "S" unto itself...it should be integrated into the concept of 5S.

If we find hoses are lying on the floor this is not a failure to put things back in their place (i.e., Simplify) but can result in a safety issue (e.g., tripping)...but the safety issue has risen from the inability to Simplify.

Or am I missing something here? (totally possible)
