I think you could remove the safe and secure from the title…

Environment Variables are accessible to every single process running on your system… there are many apps which when crash, they logs env to disk, or you could even install a packages accidentally that does nothing but grab your secrets and send away over TCP.. Who knows what you do with your server… Unless you are in some sort of isolation mode, perhaps using docker..
