5s Tool Cart

5S on the Shop Floor, Tool Organization, and Visual Organization Project

Submitted By: Stefan Thomas

This idea has become one of our best practices. A rolling 5S tool cart. Equipped with Red Tags/Logsheet, pegboard hooks, floor tape/guidelines, label maker, cleaning supplies, etc. It allows our teams to grab the cart and go for their daily 5S activities. The back side of the cart is the “Shine” side and holds brooms, cleaning agents, towel dispenser, etc. Most rolling pegboard carts sell for about $1000 online…we were creative and built this one using pegboard and a rolling floor mat wash rack for about $200.
