Achieving an ethical professional career is a journey, not a destination. Your understanding of ethical behavior will change with time, experience, and discussion with others who have set out to take a similar journey. Only when you decide on a lifetime of learning about and discussing ethical behavior with others, can you hope to complete the journey successfully. The responsibility borne by employers and senior members of the profession to set standards of ethical behavior in their own lives cannot be overstated. It is the responsibility of people in positions of authority and seniority to make their peers and colleagues aware of the need to read the code of ethics often. Further, these mentoring members have an ethical responsibility to model behaviors that others may learn from and to raise questions and engage their peers and colleagues in discussing ethical issues.
The ASCE Code of Ethics (Appendix A) provides guidance for engineers’ personal and professional conduct. The first canon of the code of ethics, holding “paramount the safety, health, and welfare of the public,” should be at the forefront of all decisions, designs, and execution of responsibilities. The remaining six canons amplify the importance of Canon 1 and further describe a professional engineer’s responsibility not only to the public but also to his/her clients, employers, and other members of the engineering profession. Addressing the issues of all of these constituencies is essential to ensure the continued safety and quality of life of the public into the future, as well as to earn and sustain public trust and support for professional engineers in the efficient, safe, and economical performance of their duties.
