Previous research has identified a need to combine and integrate organizational level, occupational health (OL-OH) interventions with workplace strategies. This study employed a maximum variation strategy to select four units within a large-scale OL-OH study for in-depth qualitative analysis. This study shows how taking a primary task focus as the outset in a participatory OL-OH intervention resulted in several local workplace specific initiatives to improve organizational conditions that employees perceived to be important to resolve. They aimed to clear the way for improving performance of primary tasks thereby achieving the purpose and strategies of the workplace.
