This paper presents the findings of a survey on the use of the Japanese practice of 5-S for workplace organisation in the UK. The research methodology was to review the literature, conduct a survey using a questionnaire and critique findings with the literature. The conclusions of the research are that practice and theory are closely related and any differences in the implementation of 5-S can be attributed mainly to the maturity of the 5-S programme. Also, there is plenty of scope to apply the principles and practices of 5-S within the non-manufacturing environment.
