Joling, C.I. Proper, K.I. van der Molen, H.F. Bongers, P.M. Publication year 2011 Abstract This article describes the use of intervention mapping to develop a worksite intervention designed to improve the work ability of construction workers. A six-step methodology was implemented that included the following: needs assessment; preparing matrices of change objectives; selecting theory-informed intervention methods and practical strategies; producing program components and materials; planning program adoption, implementation, and sustainability; planning for evaluation. The intervention developed included two individual visits of a physical therapist to lower the physical workload, a rest break tool to improve the balance between work and recovery, and two empowerment training sessions to increase the range of influence at the worksite. This study demonstrated that intervention mapping can be used in the development of a worksite intervention to improve the work ability of older workers in the construction industry.
