JALAS walks around the world - FRANCE

Join us on our 'Walk Around the World' journey as we connect with our valued customers to learn how JALAS safety and work shoes have enhanced their daily work experiences. This time, we meet up with Madame Aurélie Requin in France as part of our ongoing series, and hear her thoughts on one of JALAS' all-time favorites, Exalter.

Pioneering Safety and Comfort: A Tire Maintenance Operator's Journey with JALAS

In the world of industrial vehicle tire maintenance, Aurélie Requin is a seasoned professional with 14 years of experience. She's not only an experienced operator but also a pioneer in her field. As the first woman to take on the role of an industrial vehicle tire maintenance operator at Azur Trucks Pneus, her journey represents a significant step forward in a traditionally male-dominated industry. In this article, we explore her experiences, the distinctive challenges she encounters, and how JALAS safety footwear has improved her work routine.

Safety Challenges: Adapting to Varied Terrain

Aurélie Requin faces significant safety challenges in her role, particularly when it comes to adapting to varied terrain. Working on diverse surfaces, from smooth tarmac to uneven mud, sharp stones, and gravel, presents a formidable challenge for our tire maintenance operator. The need for a single pair of shoes that can seamlessly adapt to all types of ground is paramount. Furthermore, ankle protection from potential impact injuries is crucial. In this demanding job that often involves driving, the chosen footwear must not only be safe but also visually appealing to Aurélie and her customers. It must offer all-day comfort to withstand the rigors of her 8 to 12-hour shifts. Durability is non-negotiable since squatting and walking up to 12,000 steps a day are part of her routine.
