Abstract:

Objectives: To understand the predictors of controlled drinking in Korean male workers with a structural equation modeling based on Ajzen's theory of planned behavior. Methods: A cross-sectional survey design was used with a total of 315 male workers from 20 workplaces. Results: The modified model accounted for 58% of intentions and 20% of controlled drinking behavior. The component most increasing intentions was perceived behavior control (PBC), and the components increasing controlled drinking behavior were intentions and PBC in the modified model. Conclusions: Intervention programs should be designed to increase intentions and PBC to improve controlled drinking behavior in male workers.
