The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health targeted noise-induced hearing loss as one of the top 10 occupational hazards.
Research has been directed toward reducing noise exposure rather than identifying the factors associated with workers' decision consistently to use hearing protection.
The long-term goal of this program of research is to develop a causal model explaining workers' use of hearing protection to guide development of nursing interventions.
This study was a preliminary one to prepare for testing Pender's health-promotion model (HPM) as a causal model.
Ninety-eight skilled tradesmen completed written questionnaires at their work site.
