5s Practice

TriPreM new students got safety training last week on 20th September 2019, Friday and we practice 5S activity this week on 27th September 2019, Friday. By cleaning rooms by ourselves, the members can learn where they can find necessary items, where they should allocate our tools, etc. Most importantly, they will start to have emotional attachments to their room, tools, and machines. In our Laboratory, we do the 5s routine every Friday afternoon after our Rin-Koh Session.  This is a good practice to everyone.
