A joint project between SAI and Rapid Results Institute, the TenSquared program builds and coaches peer-selected teams of workers and managers to jointly develop and implement 100-day projects to achieve ambitious health and safety goals.

The TenSquared program starts from the premise that trust between managers and workers is both possible and critical for making progress on health and safety issues. TenSquared helps translate the shared interests of workers and managers into bold action and real results – in 100 days. Along the way, the program builds trust, improves worker-manager communication and stimulates collaborative problem solving. 


"We have seen the results that TenSquared has achieved and believe that the program is a scalable model that empowers workers to identify solutions to urgent workplace health and safety challenges."
– Michael J. Widman, Vice President, International Labor Standards, The Walt Disney Company

"Through this project we identified the weaknesses in our health and safety issues. There is now better organization and coordination around H & S issues. We had nothing before, now we can achieve our H & S goals."
