5S FOR HEALTH SERVICES

A proven method to clean up and standardise the workplace

Have a quick look around your workplace. What does it look like? Are all the workstations neat and organised? Is there a standardisation of service? This course is very much in vogue in health at the moment. Most offices have neat desks and not-so-neat desks — there is ambiguity over the tidiness standard. Not-so-neat workplaces are often excused as the person is too busy.

If you’d like to bring some standardisation and looking for healthcare training in Australia, this course is perfect.

5S for Health Services is a hybrid of three skills: time management, lean principles and personal effectiveness.

The 5S’s are Sort, Straighten, Shine, Standardise and Sustain. The last one — Sustain — is particularly powerful as it brings permanency.

If you are a health professional and looking for opportunities for health training in Australia, this training can equip you with certain key skills.

“Misplacing or losing patient records can be devastating. You need to reduce mistakes.”

— Concerned Families
