ABSTRACT:
The report presents the framework analysis on the engineering ethical issues on the whistle blowing. The whistle blowing is essential to this society to keep the justice and public safety.

At last the protection from the society should be enhanced to make the whistle blower sustainable, the professional society can help to reward the whistle blower to encourage.
