The health promotion model (Pender, 1987b) was tested with a volunteer sample of 179 blue-collar workers. Four psychological variables (importance of health, perceived health locus of control, health status, and self-efficacy), one modifying variable (selected demographics), and certain health-promoting behaviors were examined. Pearson product moment correlations and stepwise and hierarchical multiple regression techniques were used to analyze the data. Each of the psychological variables examined was predictive of health-promotive behaviors. Health status and self-efficacy were the most powerful predictors. The modifer role of demographics was also supported. The results suggest the health promotion model is potentially useful for explaining the occurrence of health-promotive behaviors among blue-collar workers.
