"Risk managing is an established occupational specialty. Because its objectives (namely loss prevention and loss control) parallel the safety practitioner's, they often have been used as descriptives for safety practice.... The goal of risk managing is to transfer the risks at the least possible cost.... The risk manager's function, like the safety specialist's, requires an intimate knowledge of the company's entire operation. The risk manager normally has the responsibility for designing, purchasing and administrating the company's insurance policies." — Safety Management, John V. Grimaldi, Rollin H. Simonds, ASSE Pub.
