Ethics - Doing the right thing with Alan Obrart, Director of Obrart & Co - Consulting Engineer - Building Services
Release date: 14 November 2017

Heavily involved with various professional associations, institutes and industry bodies and having been an office bearer for Engineers Australia, President of AIRAH, a building services consultant and lecturer in building services at Sydney University, Alan has witnessed and presented on a fair share of ethically challenging scenarios.

To what extent are Engineers, and those holding 'professional' membership, held accountable? And what options are available to you when you find yourself faced with a client pushing for a finding you don't agree with or an employer who accepts a project where the outcomes conflict with your moral compass? This chat discusses many such situations a professional might find him or herself in at various stages over a career and realistic ways to respond to those situations.
