Abstract: The purpose of this study is to make suggestions about the way to establish the relationship of mutual trust between engineers and the public from the aspect of safety and risk of technology. First, I argue that the four viewpoints on safety and risk of technology, namely each engineer, a group of engineers, engineers’ communication to the public, and interactive communication between engineers and the public, are mingled in arguments in engineering ethics. Second, I take up the disaster of the space shuttle Challenger, and argue that we should discuss five essential problems besides the well-known problem of a complicated organization. Third, I show that these essential problems are closely related to interactive communication and that interactive communication makes it possible for engineers and the public to establish the relationship of mutual trust. Fourth, I argue that there are two problems that we should solve to establish the relationship of mutual trust by interactive communication. One is that there is a deep-rooted tendency for engineers to regard science as objective and certain. The other is that there is a grave conflict between engineers and the public over risk assessment of technology. Fifth, I show three direct countermeasures and a countermeasure from the viewpoint of design thinking against these two problems.
