Environment and health

I posted a while back on the environment, and what steps we as a family take to do our part to protect it. They aren’t large things, but they are easy to do, and cost effective. And no one tells me what to do about them, it’s my choice. But I am one person, and my actions don’t really have a significant impact on the environment.

On the other hand, businesses really don’t have a lot of choice. Their actions do have a significant impact on the environment, and therefore on our health, so the government tells them what standards they must meet to lessen that impact. Some companies are using EHS compliance software to keep track of the measures they’ve implemented.

I imagine EHS compliance software is like many other things that business have to have: they may not like it, and we may all wish it wasn’t needful, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do. And if it helps businesses protect my health, and that of my family, then I reckon it’s a good thing.
