5S committee and the activities implemented
A 5S lecture was presented to the workers and the 5S committee was set up to implement the activities. The recommended areas were identified and the 5S activity carried out accordingly.

Food Hygiene
Zoning of the production area was done to indicate the clean and unclean zone. This will help the enterprise to operate in a more hygienic condition. The enterprise provided a liquid soap, a sanitizer and a paper towel at the entrance of the production room for the workers to wash and sanitise their hands before actual production starts. The enterprise also prepared a shoe rack to separate production shoes from outside shoes and this is to prevent the carrying of dirt into the production area.

Inventory control
The inventory control was not properly managed and they order for new rolls and filters more than it is required. The project team introduced the inventory control level (minimum level) to the enterprise to avoid shortage of raw materials and also for effective management of its inventory.
