What is the difference between Social Responsibility and HACCP?

Social Responsibility is about dealing with people and their behavior. In this course you learn, for example, how to tell someone who is drunk in a respectful way that he cannot order or buy any alcoholic drinks. The HACCP course is about how to apply the Hygiene code in practice, or in other words how to take care of food safety.
