The nature of the responsibility that engineers bear for producing safe designs is outlined. and some ideas about evaluating safety levels are discussed. It is suggested that engineering schools introduce these ideas through courses on engineering ethics or technology and society. presentations made at apropriate points in regular technical courses, occasional colloquia, and brief statements made to their classes by faculty members. The importance of inculating habits of carrying out routine work carefully is also pointed out.
