PURPOSE
The purpose of this study was to confirm a structural model for health promotion for industrial workers.
METHODS
Data was collected by questionnaires from 294 industrial workers at a food manufacturing factory. The data collected were analyzed through SAS 8.1 and Window LISREL 8.12a.
RESULTS
1. The result of the test showed that the measurement of fitness was chi2=() 443.35, chi2/df 5.3415, GFI .86, AGFI .75, RMR .060, NFI .95, NNFI .93, CN 77.58, and those other than NFI and NNFI did not well fit into the practical data. 2. 15 out of 29 paths in a constructed model were statistically significant. 3. The measurements for total fitness in the modified model were chi2=() 146.51, chi2/df 1.8546, GFI .95, AGFI .91, RMR .042, NFI .98, NNFI .99, CN 223.44, all of which showed fitness in good shape to the practical data. 4. The result of the study for the modified model indicated that perceived self-efficacy had the most significant direct effect on health promotion behaviors, and self-esteem, perceived benefits of action, interpersonal influences, commitment to a plan of action were important factors having influences on them.
CONCLUSION
The derived model in this study is considered appropriate in explaining and predicting health promoting behavior of industrial workers. Therefore, it can effectively be used as a reference model for further studies and suggested implication in nursing practice.
