Companies are endlessly working to improve their sustainability performance and reduce their negative social and environmental impacts. Whether corporations are choosing sustainability on their own, or they are subject to external pressures, businesses are on the correct path. With such a large impact on society, businesses have a great deal of influence that they can use to kick start progress. The environment has been abused long enough and it is time for businesses to take accountability.
In the early 1900s industrial accidents were commonplace in this country; for example, in 1907 over 3,200 people were killed in mining accidents. At this time legislation and public opinion all favored management. There were few protections for the worker's safety. Today's industrial employees are better off than their colleagues in the past. Their chances of being killed in an industrial accident are less than half of that of their predecessors of 60 years ago.
His reasoning for his argument is that engineers carry out work that have a great-influence on society and the environment and hence they need some form of guidance on how to operate. Strubel believes that as we move into the future the demands faced by engineers will be ever greater and hence the dangers of making wrong decisions will also increase, if engineers are left to think autonomously. Another reason students should be taught the standards set out in the codes of ethics is that the codes offer them help and advice in many situations. Martin and Schinzinger sums up the functions of the codes ; firstly they say that the codes provide inspiration and guidance to engineers. This guidance helps engineers in problematic situations, and also encourages how engineers should represent their profession in public.

Safety is essential in the heavy equipment industry. As a company safety impacts the company’s profitability and the well-being of employees. Therefore a training program centered on safety is not only vital, it is practical. The training will begin at orientation and continue throughout an employee’s tenure with the company. In heavy construction, failure to operate safely can cost lives, therefore the company is by nature forced to ensure that employees are aware of and follow safe operating practices.
