The principle of fidelity reveals itself in the case whereby the manager ignores the commitment to remove and clean up the fallen asbestos insulating the overhead pipes and the vault. The principle of honesty is manifested by the manager’s constant implication that the asbestos cannot cause harm unless they are disturbed, while in reality, the asbestos naturally releases particles to the environment causing lung cancer to those exposed. The inspection done by the county inspector on the building violation reveals the principle of lawfulness, which requires the individuals running a company to obey the rule of law to uphold a free and democratic society. Rocky the manager for manly construction deserves all the blame from any worker in the company who gets a lung infection because of vault asbestos particles. hence, the revelation of the principle of autonomy.
The management forces the workers to work under unhealthy condition posed by the presence of asbestos in vaults, which is a wrong move for the company by threatening to suck any workers who complain of the asbestos. This is wrong because it denies workers freedom and democratic rights. The main conflict, in this case, is the differing issue of the health risk posed by the asbestos by the workers and the company’s management, which affect the employees, county inspector and the company’s president, Rocky.
The process of resolving a problem through the perspective of consequentialist involves the evaluation of the rightness of the consensus among the parties involved in the conflict based on the consequences, also referred to as utilitarianism. Applying utilitarianism to the Blow the Whistle or Breathe Insulation case, there two options that can be considered. The first option is removing all the asbestos lining the wallboard and overhead&nbsp.pipes. This option is because of the possible negative health issues to the employees known to rise from the asbestos.
