SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. --
As a reminder it is almost time for the annual 5S "Clean Up" Days: 14-16 Jan
For the past several years, we've paused for a day to do some "clean
up" in our areas. This is one of our annual Continuous Improvement Process
events known as a "5S". The purpose of a 5S event is to simplify your work
environment be getting rid of things you don't use while improving quality,
efficiency and safety. Each "S" stands for a step in achieving workplace
orders: SORT, STRAIGHTEN, SHINE, STANDARDIZE, SUSTAIN. This year our 5S
days are Tue - Wed, 14-15 Jan.
CLEAN UP DAY -- TUE 14 JAN
On Tue 14 Jan, everyone in the 932 AW that is in the office is asked to stop
work, mission permitting, and take time to clean out your files, desk, and
work areas including closets, bookshelves, storage rooms, etc.
SORT through everything in your work area, keeping only what is necessary
for your work. Eliminate what you don't need. Do you need a real paper
copy? If not, scan it then put your hard copy paper in the shred bins
available in each building. The shred trucks will be coming on Wed 15 Jan.
Please plan to turn in any items you no longer
need to our Flea Market -- our own little "store" where anyone can take
anything there for use in their work space.
STRAIGHTEN up your area, organizing it. Think about using labels, color
coding, making items easily accessible.
SHINE your work area: clean it up and inspect everything to make sure it is
in working order.
STANDARDIZE by making it all look similar while making it easy to maintain
your work area.
SUSTAIN your efforts by periodically reviewing your area.
FLEA MARKET -- Wed 15 Jan in the MDG Auditorium
ITEMS THAT YOU NO LONGER NEED BUT SOMEONE ELSE COULD USE If you have
anything in your work area that you no longer use (such as staplers,
three-hole punches, furniture, cabinets, etc), bring it to our "flea market"
In the Med Group Auditorium. Everyone is invited to walk through these
areas and take anything that you can use in your work area on base (items
cannot be taken home). Anything left on Thursday will be sent to DRMO. This is a "your
trash is someone else's treasure" event.
We will be sending out reminder notices of this event and provide you with
updated location information as we get it. This is a heads up for you to
prepare for a MANDATORY CLEAN-UP DAY on 14 Jan.
Please let me know if you have any concerns or thoughts on how to make the
most of our seventh annual 5S Event.
