New Partnership: Sentinel and TSD Tackle Workplace Violence in CA


Sentinel Resource Group (SRG), a premier firm specializing in comprehensive security risk advisory, assessments and complex investigations services, and Training Systems Design (TSD), an experienced innovator in training development, announce their strategic collaboration to provide turnkey solutions for employers required to comply with California’s SB 553 workplace violence prevention program mandate.

Effective July 1, 2024, many California employers must have implemented comprehensive Workplace Violence Prevention Plans (WVPP) to meet newly enacted statutory legal requirements. SRG and TSD now offer a full spectrum of compliance solutions, from scalable e-learning modules to fully developed and supported program deployments, ensuring businesses can meet these demands effectively.

Wesley Bull, CEO of Sentinel Resource Group, underscored the strategic significance of this collaboration: “Partnering with Training Systems Design represents a pivotal advancement in delivering holistic solutions to California employers, equipping them to meet the rigorous requirements of workplace safety and comply with the extensive preliminary elements mandated by the workplace violence prevention program.”
Bull further clarified, “There is a widespread misunderstanding that SB 553 merely calls for a training program. This is a misconception. SB 553 mandates a robust, comprehensive workplace violence prevention program, with training being just one integral aspect. Our alliance with TSD harnesses our combined expertise, offering a spectrum of tailored solutions to our clients.”

Max Holvik, CEO of Training Systems Design, added, “We are thrilled to partner with Sentinel Resource Group to address the critical need for effective workplace violence prevention programs. The combination of SRG’s strong domain expertise and TSD’s experience in creating high-quality training programs will enable businesses to meet compliance requirements with ease and confidence, while also fostering a safer work environment. This is an important concern for employers, employees, and society at large. We are highly motivated to help companies stay compliant with this new law, primarily to keep their employees safe, but also to help them avoid high fees for lack of compliance.
