In a nutshell: Long term care workers are at significant risk for occupation-related injuries. This study sought to evaluate the implementation process of a participatory change programme to reduce risk. Process evaluation revealed idiosyncratic approaches to recruitment and related challenges of reaching staff. Solutions to prioritized hazards were developed and implemented, despite time challenges. The iterative solution development approach was embraced. Program fidelity was considered good despite early program time demands. Post implementation reports revealed sustained hazard identification and solution development.
