On Feb. 13, Royal Supply Company and Speciality Bearings President Don Chargin announced his new company, 6S Safety, which will distribute safety products and services for MRO customers and OEMs.
The term 6S (also known as 5S + Safety) is a system that “aims to promote and sustain a high level of productivity and safety throughout a workspace,” according to Safety Culture. The other S terms include Sort, Set-in-Order, Shine, Standardize and Sustain.
“When you implement the 5S quality process, you secure the 6S, which is safety compliance,” Chargin said.
The announcement comes almost two-and-a-half years after Chargin launched Specialty Bearings.
“We are excited to present our full 6S Safety capabilities and help our customers to keep their costs in line and their injuries to a minimum using the proper safety products in addition to the training we offer,” he said in his Feb. 13 announcement.
