This article describes a study on the effectiveness of a Health Profile that was offered to blue-collar workers.
The major goal of the Health Profile was to improve workers'awareness of own health behaviors and their intentions to change unhealthy behaviors.
The Health Profile consisted of a booklet in A4-format in which tailored information was given on health behaviors.
A pretest and posttest design (no control group) was used.
The results showed a significant improvement of awareness of own health behaviors.
Significant attitudinal changes were also achieved.
There were no changes in social support and self-efficacy nor was there a change in the intention to change behaviors.
These results suggest that a personalized Health Profile is a promising means to make workers aware of their personal risk behaviors.
