The safety of design a bridge should be confirmed before permission for construction is given. Engineers can indicate that the design is safe by indicating that they have followed the appropriate codes and complied with legislation. Safety issues consist of different aspects with regards to a bridge. The different aspects were identified by looking at the appropriate legislation, codes, and interview the project manager before the observation period started. 3.1: The Ethics codes of design a bridge: We have here many points around Ethics codes of design a bridge as this case study: i. The bridge can be built without any workers being hurt or injured. Accidents happen regularly during construction work. People fall down from heights; they get stuck under heavy construction parts. These kinds of accidents should be prevented if possible for example by limiting the amount of work that needs to be done at a height and ensure that safety features are built into the design. ii. The bridge should be strong enough to withstand all normal loading during the whole of its lifetime and all unexpected loading that might occur during accidents. iii. The designing engineers should take all kinds of mistreat which can be collapsed the bridge. Therefore, they should imagine all those kinds of mistreat in the design processes. iv. The designing engineers should
