Read Case NSPE No 98-9 Duty to report unsafe conditions/client request for secrecy
- For the Citicorp building, occupants weren’t forced to leave but they did not choose to stay either (in fact they weren’t aware that they had a choice at all). Is that okay with you? Do they have the right to know that building remediation is occurring?
- Do we as engineers have the right to act as paternalistic decision-makers over one’s safety? Do you see this as different than for example seatbelt or motorcycle helmet laws?
