On 9 March 2015, the Quality Management Institute (IPQ) held a 5S Badge Concession Session to all staff at the IPQ Executive Meeting room. The ceremony was held as the initial preparatory steps to face Quality Environment Certification (5S) audit of the Malaysia Productivity Corporation (MPC).
The ceremony was officiated by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Haim Hilman Abdullah, Director of Quality Management Institute, by distributing 5S badges to all IPQ staff. The badges are worn by all staff on every Thursday which has been established as ‘5S’ Day. The adoption of this badge is seen as Standardization (Seiketsu) especially when ushering auditors from MPC later. In addition, the adoption of this badge is expected to spur the IPQ staff to implement 5S practices on an ongoing basis.
The ceremony ended with a photography session among IPQ staff.
