Engineering Ethics Survey: What’s Your Opinion?

By Chemical Engineering |

How would you respond to these hypothetical situations involving ethics questions in the CPI? Although not an everyday occurrence, ethical questions, large and small, confront each of us in our professional lives. For professionals in the chemical process industries (CPI), ethics issues can take on added importance because of the potential safety, environmental and quality-control hazards associated with industrial-scale chemical processes. While laws, regulations and codes of ethical conduct are all in place, often the nuances of particular cases make it difficult to determine the best course of action. In the past, Chemical Engineering magazine has conducted ethical-related surveys in order to generate information and discussion about how peers in the CPI would handle ethically charged situations. An ethics survey was last conducted in 2007 (see Chem. Eng., April 2007, pp. 50–53 and Chem. Eng., October 2007, pp. 60–67). The editors of CE are now revisiting the topic of engineering ethics in the CPI with a new survey. We are seeking input from our readers. A user-friendly survey has been set up online. Please consider the following scenarios and the associated ethical questions, then visit the following URL to participate in the…
