Professional Liability Insurance

Professional Liability Insurance

Hello all,

I'm licensed in NY but I haven't ever signed/sealed drawings and I do not have professional liability insurance currently.

Recently an opportunity has come up for me to, on a consulting basis, review/comment, sign & seal fire alarm shop drawings and fire protection system shop drawings & hydraulic calculations for contractors that I have dealt with in the past. These contractors are required to submit signed/sealed submittals to the EOR.

I am competent to design/review the systems I would be reviewing and I wasn't involved in the initial design that the contractors are preparing shop drawings from, so I don't believe there is any ethical reason that I cannot take on this type of work.

My question is, how do I go about estimating the amount of professional liability insurance that I need in order to get a quote from an insurance firm? This wouldn't be steady work and I would likely amount to only a few thousand dollars a year at most, so if insurance will cost more than that, it's a moot point…

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Showing examples that exhibit engineering prowess for PE Licensure – Chemical Engineer

Showing examples that exhibit engineering prowess for PE Licensure – Chemical Engineer

So here I am, I've passed the FE, PE and met all of the requirements for years of experience. I am ready to get my PE, but since I have not worked directly under a licensed engineer for a time period – they request I submit work that includes calculations and other details that show my engineering know-how.

However, my old company is very uptight when it comes to Intellectual property, etc. and does not want to supply me examples of work that I performed while I worked there. So, short of submitting school work – what should I do? I don't want to submit school work and look like a fool, pay the application fee – and get turned down because my work is not real-life.

I feel it is very unfair that I am being penalized basically because I did not work directly under a PE. How am I supposed to have control over this – not to mention most Chemical Engineers DO NOT have their PE. If I had worked under a PE, then I would not have to submit this extra validation work. Not fair. Like I can control who my boss is?

I have invested a lot of my own money, time, and effort to passing these exams and getting this far. However, they are extremely vague when it comes to what sort of material to submit to the board. Anyone have experience with this issue and have any suggestions? Thank you.

I was braining storming ways to increase the stability of my Wooden Board On Wheels and thought about elevating the wheels and putting them at the very edge.

I was braining storming ways to increase the stability of my Wooden Board On Wheels and thought about elevating the wheels and putting them at the very edge.

First here is a before and after diagram of the device in question.

Second when I talk about increasing the stability, I mean decreasing the likely hood that the board will tip over when I pull it.

Would this change in wheel structure increase the stability of the device while letting my use fewer wheels?

If this is confusing or I'll just have to test it, let me know.

Thank you in advance.

Arkwright Engineering Scholarship

Hello!

I am applying for the Arkwright Engineering Scholarship and I have the Aptitude Exam coming up in a few days. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on what to study for it? I know you should know simple mechanisms like cams, gears, wheels and types of motion but if anyone could provide me with some resources or knowledge to help that would be much appreciated.

Any advice for the Scholarship is appreciated too 🙂

Hello, I'm a designer with little engineering knowledge. This is an wireless phone charger and I want it to tilt like a see-saw from one to side to the other and back through internal parts and mechanisms. Any ideas? Thanks

Tapped hole depth

Tapped hole depth

For those in machining, is it difficult to fully tap a 3/4" hole through a 2.5" thick 6061 aluminum plate? There are some people around the office that are under the impression that such a feature is very difficult and would be excessively time consuming and costly and I wanted to check with those who may know for sure.
