Rates of noise-induced hearing loss among farmers are high. Although this condition is preventable through the use of hearing protection, rates of use are low. A study was designed using the Pender Health Promotion Model (HPM) to describe attitudes and behaviors related to hearing protection device (HPD) use among farmers. A logistic regression analysis identified interpersonal support, barriers, and situational influences as significant predictors of this health behavior, correctly predicting 76 percent of the cases. Items from the predictor scales were examined for their relationship to HPD use, appropriateness for educational intervention, and room for improvement on the scale. Based on this analysis, several items were selected for informing the design of interventions to promote HPD use among farmers thereby reducing the level of NIHL among this high-risk worker group.
