Many facets of our lives have been moved online; work, school, and our continuing education events. Our last virtual conference on April 30th was a huge success! NJSPE members and professional engineer licensees were able to earn the same amount of PDH credits, from the comfort of their own home, as they would have if they attended an in-person event! In the spirit of safety and health, we will be offering another opportunity for continuing education for engineers on June 30th from 8:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. This continuing education event will be presented via Zoom. The deadline to register is June 27th at 5:00 p.m.! During this webinar, you can earn up to four PDH credits! These PDHs will count for New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania engineers.
The good news is that if you’ve already completed your ethics requirements, you have the option to purchase access to just the morning session!
Construction Quality Assurance and Construction Engineering and Inspection Services for the Goethals Bridge Replacement
The Goethals Bridge Replacement Project required innovations in monitoring permitting, quality assurance (QA), resource tracking, and Construction Engineering and Inspection (CEI) scheduling. KSE performed Construction QA and CEI Services, and developed testing procedures for construction materials. Document control procedures ensured that current documents were available and obsolete documents were identified/removed. Controlled Inspection checklists ascertained that design and construction requirements for work elements were fully documented before acceptance. Nonconformance and Daily Work Reports documented project quality. The CEI services were iteratively reviewed/ improved, allowing the development of innovative practices to manage large, complex projects. These practices can be applied to other projects.
Ethics for Professional Engineers
“Engineering is an important and learned profession. As members of this profession, engineers are expected to exhibit the highest standards of honesty and integrity. Engineering has a direct and vital impact on the quality of life for all people. Accordingly, the services provided by engineers require honesty, impartiality, fairness, and equity, and must be dedicated to the protection of the public health, safety, and welfare. Engineers must perform under a standard of professional behavior that requires adherence to the highest principles of ethical conduct.” NSPE Code of Ethics Preamble. The presentation will provide an overview of the need for ethics in professional engineering; what the NSPE Code of Ethics, through the Fundamental Canons, Rules of Practice, and Professional Obligations, requires of professional engineers; and what steps can be taken to practice ethical decision making. This will be compared to legal obligations as promulgated in New Jersey regulations, with a comparison to the NCEES Model Rules. Discussion of some example cases from the NSPE Board of Ethical Review will be included.
