Clean Practice Gemba Walk
5
First, create a cleaning schedule
6
1) Divide your facility into zones. Each zone should be relatively compact to effective team ownershp and to enable regular cleanings tthat take no more than 30 minutes.
7
2) Appoint a Zone Captain for each zone
8
3) Assign a color for each zone
9
4) Provide each Zone Captain with colored stickers matching the zone color
10
5) Walk the zone with the zone captain, a representative of the safety committee, an expert in Lean (if you have one), and other interested employees. From a starting point follow the wall and spiral inward, if needed.
11
6) Place stickers on any surface which is touched by multiple people's hands in any 72 hour period. Examples include light switches, chairs, tables, door knobs, power buttons, etc. Place blue painters tape on the floor to note social distancing issues. Take note of areas with potential ventilation issues.
12
7) As you place the stickers record the location in a copy of the Template cleaning schedule tab
13
8) Assign cleaners to cleaning schedule slots, with at least one cleaning per day. It's very motivating for team leaders, such as department heads or the CEO to take a cleaning day.
14
9) The cleaners should book time on their calendars for completing the task.
15
10) Post a printed copy of the cleaning schedule in a visible location, such as a break area
16
11) Each cleaner initials each location after completing a cleaning
17
18
Second, do a follow up Gemba walk no later than 5 business days after the first
19
1) The Zone captain assembles a team, ideally including at least one new person (fresh eyes!)
20
2) Walk the zone again, looking for missing cleaning, social distancing, and ventilation issues
21
3) This time, also look for opportunities to eliminate the vector, such as removing or replacing door knobs, or installing alternative, hands free operation mechanisms
