||The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness and processes of occupational-based behavioural interventions for workers exposed to dermal and respiratory hazards. A systematic review was conducted. Ten articles identified as being potentially relevant were included. Data were extracted according to potential sources of bias, impact and behavioural change processes used. A predominance of small effect sizes, particularly for larger samples, demonstrated limited but positive impact upon exposure. Studies contained too much heterogeneity for reliable meta-analysis. None of the studies covered the full range of behaviour change components necessary for reducing exposure risk. Recommendations for future interventions are proposed.
