This is a recorded webinar from August 3, 2021.
We work in a world of conflicting interests. For contractors, for ready mix concrete producers and precasters, and for material suppliers, there will often be a conflict between quality and profits. It is often the engineer's job to determine what changes to products and practices can be safely made to optimize profits. It is also an engineer's duty to hold the line on quality issues that could affect health and safety regardless of cost. The speaker will give real life examples of ethical issues that engineers face and will provide advice on how to address them.
