An Ethic is a moral system. When one declares an ethical position, one is making a statement about how a moral position is systematized. A Code of Ethics is not necessarily an Ethic but its mechanisms hide an ethic (ideology). Most Codes of Ethics are statements of rules and standards not the guiding philosophy (moral ethic) that underpins the code.
One is only likely to understand the difference between ‘values’ with ‘what is valued’ through a study of Ethics.
An Ethic of risk is determined by one’s anthropology in the face of uncertainty. How one makes a decision in tackling risk is based on one’s ethic. One needs to know that even the Act and Regulation are interpreted and there is no neutral interpretation of the Act.
There are eight common approaches to ethics that will be expxlored in the program, these are:
Every ethic holds an assumption about the nature of personhood and has a hidden anthropology. This is tied to a worldview that is often disguised in value, mission and strategic statements. This Workshop helps participants be more wise about such dynamics and how to traverse the malaise of mess in ethics associated with risk management.
