Objective: As part of a Research-to-Practice Toolkit development effort by the Center for the Promotion of Health in the New England Workplace, to develop and test a structured participatory approach for engaging front-line employees in the design of integrated health protection and promotion interventions. Methods: On the basis of a participatory ergonomics framework, the InterventionDesign and Analysis Scorecard (IDEAS) provides a stepwise approach for developing intervention proposals, including root cause analysis and setting evaluation criteria such as scope, obstacles, and cost/benefit tradeoffs. The IDEAS was tested at four diverse worksites with trained facilitators. Results: Employees were able to develop and gain management support for integrated interventions at each worksite. Conclusions: The IDEAS can be used effectively by front-line employees to plan integrated interventions in a program dedicated to continuous improvement of employee health protection/ promotion and Total Worker Health.
