CONSECUTIVE 2-DAY 5S ROLL OUT
With a 2-day series of 5S rollouts, we train groups of production employees and support them during the implementation of the 5S activities. The safety risk areas with many traffic movements are emphatically visible on the spaghetti diagram. This immediately increases safety awareness among employees. This is then reflected in the floor marking plan.
A successful 5S implementation starts with a good scan of the area and design of the 5S red label area. The 5S app from Scan to Stand Hold on the tablet makes it easy for all employees to participate and thus successfully introduce 5S at their own workplace.
Hordijk Packaging invests in the 5S app to effectively support the assurance phase and thus sustainably secure the results achieved.
Hordijk Packaging is one of the largest thermoforming producers in Europe and mainly supplies the fresh food industry. Here Hordijk designs its own foils before extruding the foils from raw materials.
