Dr Bonakele Qabaka received an award for Excellence in Health and Safety Leadership in the company's global awards. Dr Qabaka joined the Struandale plant nearly two years ago and has since actively supported the implementation of the new safety operating system. In so doing, he continuously challenges those involved to work actively towards creating a safe work environment.

"It is an honour to receive this accolade," he commented. "I strongly believe in the slogan 'batho pele', meaning people first and I am grateful to Ford for providing us with the platform that makes this possible."
FMCSA'S HIV/Aids team was also honoured with an award for the implementation of a HIV/Aids prevention programme. The HIV/Aids team - Kurt Bothman, Ivy Appolis, Serano Vardy and Siphiwo Dyani - worked tirelessly in their efforts to establish an external support partnership with the Automotive Industry Development Centre in rolling out HIV/Aids prevention programmes.
