A Shadow Board is a great addition to any 5S/6S system, acting as a locator for tools and equipment. They can be customised to mirror your site processes and devices, with personalised graphics/shadows that indicate exactly where the item should be stored when not in use. The shadow board allows the easy recognition of missing items and helps to ensure everything is stored correctly. Each shadow board is marked for accurate attachment of hooks, hangers and rails.
There are many important benefits derived from using a shadow board system such as: 1. Systematic storage in an organised manner, makes it easy to locate items when needed, 2. Improved productivity due to removing wasted time searching for tools and equipment, 3. Accountability with each worker responsible for their workstation – missing items are quickly identified, 4. Space utilisation is improved by keeping everything stored neatly in one easy to reach location.
