We work in a contaminated environment, so we keep protected. Every time we leave a zone, we remove a layer. We verify each other when we leave a zone. It's important to have good interpersonal relations because the job involves a lot of interaction. You have to be methodical and know how to analyse the measurements made in the field. The questioning attitude is always present in our jobs. I change workshops every time. Each time, it’s a new process and there is a lot to learn -- which is precisely what I like.
Françoise, Mechanical Workshops, who is always learning something new and enjoys it.
