The aim of this study was to evaluate the
effectiveness of 5S practices implementation in COLDAIR
Engineering Company for manufacturing and assembling.
The effectiveness of 5S implementation was major concern
for organization in industrial sector in the last decade
because many 5S project failed to achieve the expected
results by optimizing the workplace environments. the
researchers used a descriptive methodology. The targeted
population of this study was the employees of COLDAIR
Company. From The survey population (managers,
supervisors, workers), 40 employees were selected to
represent the sample using random sampling technique.
Finding from this study indicate that 5S implementation
increase the efficiency in the workflow, improve working
environment in the workplace, reduce human movement,
and allows for more orderliness after removal of unwanted
items. One more significant findings is that 5S practices
Minimize the causes of faults with auditing and continuous
cleaning Work environment, preventing accidents and
injuries by developing a safe work environment. The
findings of this research provide insights for organizations
that want to start a journey of continuous improvement
for productivity and lean manufacturing, because the first
step in that journey is to effectively implement 5S
practices. For the practitioners and managers responsible
for 5S methodology implementation, this paper shows
them how they can effectively implement 5S using a
thoroughly tested tools to provide environment necessary
for the operation of their processes. Further investigations
are needed to examine the mediating role of 5S
methodology in the relationship between ISO 45001:2018
and occupational health and safety.
