Hazardous noise exposures remain prevalent for factory workers, and use of hearing protective devices (HPDs) is below what is required to prevent noise-induced hearing loss. Research programs in this area have shown continued yet small progress toward increasing workers' HPD use. The purpose of this study was to test the Transtheoretical Model (TTM) as a basis for facilitating future work in this area. Stages of hearing protection use were examined for discrete stage variance by the model constructs of Pros, Cons, and Self-efficacy. The TTM suppositions for Decisional Balance and Self-efficacy were also examined. This study conducted a secondary analysis of measures originally collected within a randomized controlled clinical trial. The sample included 1245 factory workers from a Midwestern automotive manufacturing plant. The perceived benefits and barriers to use of hearing protection were fit as the TTM constructs of Pros and Cons of behavioral enactment. Pros, Cons, and Self-efficacy in HPD use were examined across stages of HPD use. ANOVA was used to examine the constructs across stages. Significant variance was found across stages in the theorized directions for the Pros [F(4, 1240) = 46.29, p = < .001], Cons [F(4, 1240) = 17.14, p < .001], and Self-efficacy [F (4, 1240) = 7.32, p = < .001] measures. The postulated crossover effect in Decisional Balance was also demonstrated. The support found for distinct stages suggests that the use of the TTM can offer a meaningful framework for further development of tailored hearing conservation training programs. Integration of these constructs within current research offers an additional approach to enhance nursing interventions to promote workers' increased use of HPDs.
