Gilbane Gold and Engineering Ethics Ethics are fundamental in all human interaction; they guide or beliefs and behaviors, therefore fundamentally affecting how we live life. As Christians, it is especially important to live a life of ethics in order to follow the standard to which God has called us with the words: “Do all things without grumbling or disputing; so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world” (NASB). This responsibility to live life in a way that is caring and beneficial to others is especially important for engineers. Engineers are often held to a higher standard than most other workers due to the nature of an engineer’s work to involve the safety of others. The National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) has a Code of Ethics for Engineers that highlights a few of the most important aspects of proper ethical consideration in the work of an engineer. In the ethics video produced by the NSPE we see Z-Corp—a company responsible for providing commercial fertilizer—break many of these ethical considerations. The three most considerable ethical issues seen in this video are: Z-Corp lying to the public about the state of their product, using outdate, less accurate tests in order to pass contamination laws, and firing the most competent staff that they had to authorize the contamination released by the plant.
