Taking care of health, safety and environmental issues is the socially responsible thing to do. That is why good businesses give these issues serious consideration. They evaluate their company's health and safety environments and do whatever they can to keep their businesses safe and healthy. They also take care of the environment that we all live in. They do these things because they are socially responsible, but they also do them because they are part of their sustainability program.
