||The Fort McMurray demonstration project in social marketing: Health- and safety-related behaviour among oil sands workers
||Aug. 1996, Vol.46, No.4, p.265-274. 6 ref.
||In a survey of 150 oil sands workers in Fort McMurray, Canada, the workers reported much stronger attitudes toward safety and risk-taking behaviour than did community residents in general, including strong advocacy of vigorous enforcement of occupational health and safety standards. However, they showed a variability in behaviour at home similar to that seen in the general population, generally reporting less consistent use of personal protection at home than at work. The potential may exist to transfer the technology and attitudes from workplace health and safety to community safety, possibly by involving these workers directly in community initiatives.
