What is the difference between risk management and loss control in the insurance industry?

When looking for a job in the insurance industry, which position would you chose as a safety professional?

As a safety professional – you want loss control.

Risk management is all about identifying the risks, and deciding how to manage them – whether avoiding them, trying to transfer the risk to a business associate or insurance company, or assuming the risk.

Loss control is the whole safety thing – that is, you already have the exposure, you just need to try to minimize potential losses. Loss control is more "hands on" than the risk management, IMO.
