In Wa Engineers Inspect, sites, Slabs, Reo, Structural Steelwork, Non Compliance, Wind ,Cyclone framing and issue repair notices on behalf of clients....ive seen some abuse of that power
If an engineer stops a concrete pour he may never work for that builder again so you want to inspect the works well in advance.
Finally, I dont like getting involved in disputes as I see both sides of the ledger and basically we all make mistakes which need to be dealt with immediately.
In order to avoid mistakes I take great care in presenting the best solutions to clients this involves data, Simplified engineering (3D) details/drawings , checklists and Staff training programs, etc,etc.
Seen a lot of changes with technology some are helpful some not so, same goes with new materials and construction methods.LOL layers on layers where does it stop?
apologies for the rant
Using this mindset, lets hypothetically change the industry we are discussing and replace it with the finance industry. If you were to obtain financial advice from someone that worked in the industry would you expect that the adviser was qualified to provide that information? Because one of the major differences in having an industry with governed licencing & bureaucracies is that the consumer is protected against negligence in tort. Additionally, the person who committed the offence is fined substantually and their licence revoked. Thus, not allowed to work as a financial advisor. Do these licences and laws provide protection for the receiving consumer??????
Now.... tell me what the differences are between the two industries if each of the industries caused an action that was negligent & didn't follow the industry standards?
I believe that the consumer is protected in one & in the other they are once again punished to try and obtain justice - additionally as not compensated (or sufficiently), and the their business trade continues regardless.
Now imagine if they didnt have to obtain these qualifictions/licences etc?
