Abstract – This paper presents safety and health for engineers based on ethics engineering. In engineering field, an engineer must consider all aspects of safety in order to ensure public safety and health. An engineer also must emphasis of ethics aspect in work as it is a key feature of professional engineer lives. Safety and Health are significant aspects in engineering, management and other fields. Most professional engineers stated that safety and health are issues of utmost significant in engineering training. The need for suitable education and practice in engineering safety and health is widely recognized and engineering programs usually must appropriately handle safety and health to maintain accreditation. Thus, this paper will help to convey details about the safety and health for engineers.
What is Ethics? Ethics is defined as “the discipline dealing with what is good and bad and with moral duty and obligation " . In other words, ethics is the study of the morals characteristic. It also related with the choices of moral that are made by everyone in their relationship with others . Engineering Ethics plays the main role for professional engineers in controlling their behaviour by the rules and standards . Basically, general definition of ethics tightly related with engineering ethic, but engineering ethics is more focusing on situation involving in engineer professional lives .
Nowadays, technological advancements are a major role for engineers which have created many changes for...
