Risky Business - The Life of a Risk Specialist

Risky Business - The Life of a Risk Specialist

These days, some job titles sound like things only heard in 90's sci-fi movies. Unfortunately being a 'Risk Specialist' doesn't mean you'll be dancing to Old Town Rock n Roll like Tom Cruise, but there are plenty of interesting things in this profession.

Risk management specialists are financial managers that use specific training, skills, and experience to identify possible risks that could result in lower cash flow and higher insurance rates for the business. 

Risk management specialists have distinct personalities. They tend to be conventional individuals, which means they’re conscientious and conservative. They are logical, efficient, orderly, and organized. Some of them are also enterprising, meaning they’re adventurous, ambitious, assertive, extroverted, energetic, enthusiastic, confident, and optimistic.

Risk management specialists may be called on to do a variety of things, such as filing workers compensation claims, inspecting work conditions, reading code and legal requirements, surveying clients, searching for any conditions where liability could occur, and negotiating with unions over workers' pay and working conditions.

Aside from the office, a risk manager’s workplace is also in the field. This includes showing up at job sites to assess possible risks, presenting information in conference rooms, and going out into the community to meet with clients and other stakeholders.
