Well I suppose Kantian Ethics would apply to benefit businesses due to the categorical imperitave, more so the rules on not using an Individual as a means to an end. In a business sense this would mean seeing employees as more than just workers to make the owner money.
And secondly the Principle of Universality would assert that any rule or practice that one company puts into place (e.g. tighter safety checks) should be beneficial if all companies did so, thus in theory Kantian Ethics can work to reduce businesses taking the **** morally both for workers safety and overall business practice

It'd also have to inform how you interact with consumers, viz not exploiting their spending power and using them merely as means.
