ISO Today: Empowering Personnel Thru Learning Opportunity

QUEZON CITY—A total of 58 participants involved in Quality Management System of Agricultural Training Institute and its network of training centers participate in the Training Workshop on ISO’s 5S (Sort, Systematized, Sweep, Sanitize, Self-Discipline) Good Housekeeping and Seminar Workshop on Records Disaster Preparedness and Business Continuity.

Highlighting “engagement of the people” as one of the quality management principles, personnel who handle documented information are vital in an ISO certified agency. In line with this, there is a need to empower them towards good housekeeping practices in conformity to ISO 9001:2015, specifically Clause 7.5—Production and Service Provision.

“Lahat nagsisimula sa isa, tapos susunod na yung iba. 5S should be practiced spontaneously and willingly as a way of life by everyone.” Resource Person Renato G. Liamzon, BSECE-Consultant, noted that everyone should develop appreciation on the importance of an effective records management.

The 5S process is originally developed for manufacturing companies in Japan by Hiroyuki Hirano. The principles of 5S translate well to any work environment, may it be corporate or government offices, to achieve total organization, cleanliness, and standardization. This training course aims to provide the said participants a learning opportunity and in-depth discussion on work productivity and quality improvement tools and approaches, employing active and participative learning through lectures, workshops, and structured learning exercises.

This two-day training is being held at the Rural Development Education Center, ATI Compound, Elliptical Road, Diliman, Quezon City on February 7-8 2017.
