This paper is written to contribute to the debate on risk assessment discussed in a wider context in a paper published in the previous issue of this journal. The views expressed are not necessarily those of the author's employer.
In the Executive Summary of the Technology Foresight document ‘Progress through Partnership’, Section 2, related to construction, the basics of a vision for the future are identified: ‘Its vision is of a construction industry which sustains high levels of both profitability and responsibility. The industry will be profitable through producing world class products and service for markets at home and abroad, through making major and successive productivity improvements and through fostering and benefiting from an innovative culture, stimulated jointly by government and industry.’

Engineers’ remuneration and status
Alan Hepburn, from Birdham in Chichester; refers to his previous point (Verulam, 19 September 1995):
Many thanks for publishing my letter regarding remuneration and status. However, I would like to take issue with you regarding your suggestion with respect to Fellows. This classification, exclusive or otherwise, means nothing to the general public. It is the overall status of a structural engineer which needs to be improved.
