A method for Effect Modifier Assessment in ergonomic intervention studies - the EMA-Method

Ergonomic intervention research includes studies in which researchers introduce or monitor changes in the work environment in order to assess impact on risk factors and / or health. In our systematic review Westgaard & Winkel (2011) it was, among other things, concluded that there are many changes in and around production systems that can lead to effects on musculoskeletal and mental health and / or corresponding risk factors; e.g. various forms of downsizing (including rumors of downsizing), management style and parallel interventions.
