There isn't really a standard audit form. The important thing is that your audit is based on the basic ideas of 5S.

Here's one I've mocked up using Dozuki.

Here's a PDF sample of the same:

The attached forms are good examples to start with. There's an audit form for a shop and one for an office.

I suggest using these the way they are until you find they need to be changed to suit your specific workplace. Over time, you might find you'll want to add specific items to include on the form.

When you complete your audit, you just might have more items to deal with than you can really handle. Don't worry about it. Just make the most important improvements you know you can deal with. Try to get some quick wins under your belt. This will help motivate the team to press on with all the other improvement opportunities.
