Mr. J. A. Baird has written in amplification of his earlier letter which appeared in this column in September 1975: Somehow my edited contribution on training and engineer's failures has been misunderstood (The Structural Engineer, Vol. 53, No. 9, p. 400). Mistakes are being made and of course they have to be investigated, preferably by someone experienced, perhaps even specializing full time in such work. However, my communication was to draw attention to the appointment made necessary because we, as a profession, are making sufficient errors for a fulltime inspector to be required, and to ask if we are satisfied with current training which has led to this situation.
