Congratulations to NSW Automotive apprentice, Joshua Holton, on winning the MIGAS Safety Star Award for May 2015.
Joshua is completing a Certificate III in Automotive Mechanical Technology with host company Target Automotive Repair in Riverstone, NSW.

After eight years of constant struggle and annoyance for fellow employees at Target Automotive Repairs, Joshua took the initiative to design and install a new air-line from the compressor outlet on one side of the workshop to the other side, going up the wall and across the roof and down to the tyre machine on the other side.
This new instalment eliminated the past struggle and safety issue of finding an air-line, untwisting it, finding the right connections and then running it across the floor in front of two work stations, and constantly being interrupted from vehicles driving over it.
This simple problem has now been solved thanks to Joshua, and has saved considerable time and eliminated all safety issues that could have arisen.
Well done Joshua!
