Summary: Jim will discuss several situations involving ethics that could be typical of the types of things professional engineers must deal with in their engineering positions.  Each situation could have resulted in significant risk to workers on the site, and/or the public, had not the facts been found and the situation resolved.  Each of the situations Jim will discuss involved activity in engineering and construction projects, or facilities operations; two were personally known to him, and his examples have significant coverage of the events found in on-line sources.

Mr. Rispoli served as an Assistant Secretary of Energy from 2005 through 2008, nominated by the President and unanimously confirmed by the United States Senate.
