I started Bridge Safety Consultants in 2003 in order to correct a problem. Safety meetings were a waste of time. Instead of providing important information that would help prevent injuries, they droned on, covering the same topics in the same boring way, with the workforce completely tuning out. At least half the time the presenter spoke only English, so the primarily Spanish-speaking workforce didn’t know what was being said anyway!
The most effective way to engage any audience Is to use humor, so I Interviewed Spanish-speaking comedians to find one who was smart enough, and interested enough to deliver safety meetings that workers actually paid attention to and enjoyed. That was the start of our company.
From there we expanded to delivering sexual harassment prevention trainings using the same idea; Engage the attendees with humor, help them understand not only the pitfalls and dangers of harassment, but how foolish it can be. Our trainers/comedians act out different scenarios to illustrate what not to do.
Our success in creating engaging training modules has inspired us to provide more important variations such as workplace violence, active shooter, and most recently unconscious bias, diversity, equity, and inclusion. We do all of them a little differently because our goal is to connect with the attendees and foster a greater understanding.

Richard's training was once again fantastic! He really does an excellent job of keeping the group engaged throughout the training. I'm always amazed at how many compliments I get on the training after. In fact, our CEO joined the first training on Tuesday 9/15 just to compliment Richard on his presentation and how much he got out of it last year. Thank you again!
Your training was the best we have ever had - on any topic! It's because the trainer kept people engaged and interested, and they learned much more than usual.
Thank You Richard for your amazing job! You make us laugh, learn and be proactive! Thank you again.
I have received many compliments about the sexual harassment training. The trainers were very entertaining and the employees appreciated that they provided the training in both English and Spanish. Your live training was a lot more enjoyable than virtual training.
Richard was excellent! He was engaging, informative and entertaining. Following the training multiple employees came to me to share their positive feedback. Many have completed SH training's at prior companies and have never had a better way of delivery. We will absolutely be using your team again for future training's.
