Industry, California is an industrial suburb of Los Angeles in the San Gabriel Valley. In Industry, the primary economic activities are wholesale, retail, and manufacturing. These industry segments account for the greatest number of firms, and employees – account for 44% of all the firms in the City of Industry.[i] A significant portion of all sexual harassment claims came from the manufacturing industry (11.72%).[ii]
Retail trade accounts for the largest single sector for both number of employees and number of businesses in the City of Industry. Data from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) indicates that retail ranked as the second-worst industry for sexual harassment, with 13.44% of EEOC sexual harassment claims coming from retail workers.[iii]
It’s important that employers in these vital sectors of the City of Industry’s economy protect themselves against sexual harassment claims with comprehensive sexual harassment trainings. The team at Bridge Safety Consultants provide in-person training sessions where attendees are engaged and interested, and really learn what constitutes harassment in today’s environment, and equally important – what does not.
With the rise of the #metoo movement, and recent changes in California law about sexual harassment training, it can be complicated navigate all of the requirements on your own. The experts at Bridge Safety Consultants understand the law, understand how it effects your industry and more specifically your business, and can provide the right type of training which is crucial for the legal safety of your company.
California law (SB1343) requires that every company, even those with as few as 5 employees must provide comprehensive training on sexual harassment, abusive behavior, and sexual orientation before the end of 2019.

Thank you... Brenda did a great job of keeping the employees engaged throughout the entire training, and mixing demonstrations and stories to explain all the concepts. Both the Spanish and English trainings were wonderful. I thought this was much more effective than the video trainings or in-house trainings we have done in the past.
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.
