A two-wave panel study was conducted to assess the ability of Pender’s (1996) Revised Health Promotion Model (RHPM) to predict factory workers’ use of hearing protection devices. An electronically administered questionnaire was completed twice by 1,037 workers approximately one year apart. A structural equation model fit by EQS explained 37% and 70% of the variance in use of hearing protection in year 1 and 2, respectively. As suggested by the RHPM, the strongest predictors of the behavior were behavior-specific factors. In year 1, the strongest predictors of use were perceived benefits of use of hearing protection (path coefficient of .31, p<.001) and norm for using hearing protection (.20, p<.001). By far, the strongest predictor of year 2 use was prior use (.77, p<.001), indicating more stability than change in the behavior. The other best predictors of year 2 use were (year 2) norm (.15, p<.001), and (year 2) benefits (.10, p<.001). These findings imply that changes in perceived norm and benefits are associated with changes in use, consistent with the RHPM’s emphasis on behavior-specific factors as determinants of behavior. The RHPM was useful for predicting use of hearing protection and changes in use of hearing protection over time.
