Protect your team, assets, and reputation from violent attacks
Studies show that nearly every workplace suffers from disruptive, threatening, and potentially violent behaviors. As an employer, you have a legal duty to take immediate and reasonable steps in response to threatening behavior from an individual or group that could impact your workplace. Our workplace violence consulting services allow you to quickly respond with experts from Bryghtpath and take the right steps to protect your team, assets, and reputation.
Violence is a risk for any public sector, private sector, or non-profit organization today – but it is a risk that can be mitigated and managed with the right strategies in place. Every stakeholder in your organization should be trained on how to detect, prevent, and intervene when an act of violence in the workplace is possible. When a critical incident does occur, your stakeholders need to know how to respond effectively to safeguard the lives of your team, the assets of your organization, and the organization’s reputation.
It is critical that your organization has the ability, whether organic to your company or through a third party like Bryghtpath, to quickly identify red flags and take action before a violent act occurs.
As a workplace violence consultant, Bryghtpath has extensive experience in evaluating, developing, and implementing workplace violence prevention & threat management programs. We’ve developed and led programs for the Fortune 50, trained frontline employees through corporate executives, and served as a subject matter expert on numerous threat assessment or threat management teams. Our Chief Executive, Bryan Strawser, is a member of the Association of Threat Assessment Professionals and recently served as a member of the Technical Committee for the 2020 update and expansion of the ASIS Standard for Workplace Violence and Active Assailant – Prevention, Intervention, and Response.

Managing Threats Workshop
Every day, thousands of threats of violence are made in workplaces and educational institutions around the world.
And most of us – managers or educators – and even human resources & security professionals have no idea how to successfully manage those threats while confidently taking actions that protect your team, students, business, and school.
Managing a threat of violence isn’t part of what we’d all think we would be doing when we started our career in business or education.
The Managing Threats Workshop by Bryghtpath is the ONLY program of its kind that…
- Explains what statements and behaviors actually make a threat you should be concerned with
- Provides the knowledge you need to gauge the severity of a threat – understand the risk factors – and put the right plan in place.
- Gives you the tools, templates, and resources you need to guide you along the way
- Leaves you with the confidence that you’re putting the right plan in place to protect your business, school, team, and/or students
So if you’re ready to finally understand how to effectively manage a threat while avoiding the fear, uncertainty, and overwhelm from other training, the Managing Threats Workshop is for you!
