On the occasion of the 19th SIZ Care Forum on Friday, September 8, our employee Sepp Sattler was honored as a shining example of his way back to work. A good 2 years ago, Sepp, our most experienced driver in international transport, had to have his right foot amputated after an accident and a subsequent severe infection. Sepp told us about the difficult way through the hospitals, his stay in the Suva rehabilitation clinic Bellikon, his getting used to life with a prosthesis and especially about the long step back into the driver's cabin of his beloved truck. He has always had only this one goal, there has never been a plan B for him, he emphasized in response to the moderator's question. The most difficult thing was to get his driver's license back. The contradictory practice of individual cantons and experts almost made him despair, and he was on the verge of moving his place of residence to the canton of Uri, because there was an uncomplicated way for his request. With the combined efforts of the transport management and the Galliker driving school, but above all with the iron will of Sepp himself, the way back succeeded. Since this May, he has been able to do "his thing" again and drive his Camion No. 315 on Europe's roads without any restrictions.
For his unvarnished, authentic statements and his noticeably unflinching will, Sepp Sattler earned great applause and many sympathies. Many of us can take people like Sepp as a real role model for "where there's a will, there's a way"!
