MTIB Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) – 5S Programme 2017

The Malaysian timber industry has contributed to about 2.8% (or RM 22.11 billion) of Malaysia’s total export to the world. Unfortunately, the industry has been branded 3D or Dirty, Dangerous and Difficult which has resulted in the declining rate of local labour force to join this industry due to its less than desirable perception.

In order to counter this misperceptions, the Malaysian Timber Industry Board (MTIB) has begun conducting the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) – 5S since 2015 for the timber industry. 39 timber companies had sign up for the programme and overall had achieved impressive results. As a collective, the 39 companies had recorded savings of RM 280,200 per year and this include labout cost, workplace savings and total time search for equipment.


What is GMP – 5S?

Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) – 5S emphasizes on the encouragement of creating a safer and more conducive work environment. This is to reduce the rate of work place accident and therefore retain existing workforce whilst attracting new ones to work for timber based factories.

ii) Phase 2 : GMP – 5S Tools & Techniques Comprehensive Training
iii) Phase 3: Implementation of GMP – 5S at factory sites


This programme is a combination of training, consultation, evaluation and best knowledge sharing practices that will enable each organisation to increase its productivity through improvements in the efficiency of its system, operation and management.These programmes will be conducted and guided by expertly trained consultants from 6 - 8 months
