The Safety Professional’s Role in ERM

Erike Young’s article, “The Safety Professional’s Role in ERM,” from the Vol. 12 No. 1 issue of the Risk Management/Insurance Practice Specialty’s publication RM/Insight asserts that safety is often viewed as a compliance function and not as an integral part of achieving an organization’s mission.

Young says that if safety professionals want an integral role in supporting their organization’s mission, they must demonstrate the value of efforts beyond compliance. They must also fully understand their roles in enterprise and traditional risk management.
