We will also examine the nature of accident and try to determine what the engineers role is in preventing accidents and ensuring the safety of the public. The engineering codes of thics show that engineers have a responsibility to society to produce product that are safe. There is an implied warranty that products are safe to use.
Code of Ethics
Put in simpler terms, a risk assessment determines possible mishaps, their likelihood and consequences, and the tolerances for such events. Risk assessment is an inherent part of a broader risk management strategy to help reduce any potential risk-related consequences. Risk assessment is necessary in individual cases, including patient and physician interactions. A systematic review of patients and doctors from found that overstatement of benefits and understatement of risks occurred more often than the alternative. There is a tendency for individuals to be less rational when risks and exposures concern themselves as opposed to others. For example, a fatality rate may be interpreted as less benign than the corresponding survival rate. Risk assessment can also be made on a much larger "systems" scale, for example assessing the risks of a nuclear power plant an interactively complex mechanical, electronic, nuclear, and human system or a hurricane a complex meteorological and geographical system.
Engineering Ethics - Responsibility for Safety
The Code of Ethics states the values and ethical principles on which the profession is based. The Association has a duty to ensure as far as possible that its members discharge their ethical obligations and are afforded the professional rights necessary for the safeguarding and promotion of the rights of people who use social work services. People who use social work services may be individuals children, young people or adults , families or other groups or communities. Social workers have a responsibility to promote and work to the Code of Ethics in carrying out their obligations to people who use social work services, to their employers, to one another, to colleagues in other disciplines and to society. The Association commends and promotes the Code of Ethics to all social workers, educators and employers of social workers in the UK. This Code of Ethics replaces the version. Section 3 comprises practice principles which indicate how the general ethical principles outlined in Section 2 should be put into practice in a UK context.
This chapter discuses the relationship between safety culture and societal culture within the context of ethics and risk, and how this relationship may have influenced the accident at Fukushima. Following a brief historical perspective on culture and technology, the context espoused by the International Atomic Energy Agency and the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission regarding safety culture is summarized, as they pertain to the accident at Fukushima. This chapter concludes that a cultural risk assessment be carried out to help overcome this difficulty in the future. On March 11, I was in Mexico sitting on a veranda overlooking the beautiful blue Pacific Ocean when I received an e-mail from my son asking me whether or not there would be a core-melt accident following the earthquake in Japan. Several hours later I received another e-mail from a former graduate student who came from Japan to study nuclear engineering at Berkeley. I scrambled to get CNN and was at once shocked and appalled.
Ethics, Risk and Safety Culture
Engineer A is an engineer in private practice. Engineer A is retained by Client A, a developer, to perform hydrodynamic modeling and coastal risk assessment in connection with potential climate change and sea level rise for a residential development project near a coastal area. The geographic area in which Client A is planning to build the project currently has no building code in place. Based on newly released information as well as a recently developed algorithm that includes newly identified historic weather data, Engineer A believes the residential development project should be built to a year projected storm surge elevation, due to public safety risks even at lower projections of future surge level rise. Because of the increased cost, Owner refuses to agree that the residential development project be built to a year projection storm surge elevation.
Till now, we have come across many reasons why an engineer needs to be responsible. The responsible engineers follow the codes of ethics to avoid unnecessary problems. The problems majorly occur in two different ways.
- Я должен выключить свет.
ГЛАВА 55 - Ты уселся на мое место, осел. Беккер с трудом приподнял голову. Неужели в этой Богом проклятой стране кто-то говорит по-английски. На него сверху вниз смотрел прыщавый бритоголовый коротышка. Половина головы красная, половина - синяя. Как пасхальное яйцо.
Просто неформальная дипломатическая любезность, - солгал. - Дипломатическая любезность? - изумился старик. - Да, сэр. Уверен, что человеку вашего положения хорошо известно, что канадское правительство делает все для защиты соотечественников от неприятностей, которые случаются с ними в этих… э-э… скажем так, не самых передовых странах. Тонкие губы Клушара изогнулись в понимающей улыбке.
Интуиция подсказывала ей спасаться бегством, но у нее не было пароля от двери лифта. Сердце говорило ей, что она должна помочь Стратмору, но. Повернувшись в полном отчаянии, она ожидала услышать шум смертельной борьбы на полу, но все было тихо. Все вдруг сразу же смолкло: как если бы Хейл, сбив коммандера с ног, снова растворился в темноте. Сьюзан ждала, вглядываясь во тьму и надеясь, что Стратмор если и пострадал, то не сильно.
