Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The following article describes the fellowship between deontology and mechanical engineering, with the aim of raising awareness of the impact that an incorrect act as a professional can have on a working environment, through the review of the career in international and national aspects in conjunction with a development of the case of the Chernobyl plant accident and its subsequent analysis, through the method of collecting bibliographic data. Since no accident is fortuitous but is the result of bad practices executed, not only for mechanical engineering, but for other races regardless of their field, they all have guides, standards, protocols in which to guide themselves to have a favorable result which is to successfully accomplish a certain task. By analysing the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, it is clear that any industrial, mechanical, chemical, or other project has consequences not only on the parts working on it, whether positive or these affect other individuals, therefore, there should have been a criterion about the work and functions that are carried out, by each member constituting a company or organization, to achieve adequate resource management, process control, selection of information to make the best decision in any problem or situation that arises as professionals, together linking with the ethics applied to a current profession.
