Abstract

Background and Objective: A health-promoting lifestyle is an essential factor in reducing related health problems and increasing the quality of life. The aim of this study was to determine the health-promoting lifestyle and related predictors in the employees of Tobacco Company. Materials and Methods: The present study was a cross-sectional (descriptiveanalytical) that performed on 283 employees of a tobacco company in Tehran. All employees of the tobacco company had a chance to enter the study and after considering the inclusion and exclusion criteria, eligible participants entered the study and those who signed the written consent were investigated. Data were collected through a socio-demographic characteristics questionnaire and a healthpromoting lifestyle questionnaire and were analyzed by SPSS software version 19 (IBM SPSS Statistics 19.0). P <0.05 was considered significant. Results: The mean ±standard deviation of the total health-promoting lifestyle score was 131.53 ±21.17. The lowest and highest mean scores were related to the subscales of physical activity 18.50 ±5.46 and spiritual growth 25.61 ±5.03, respectively. Modified GLM results showed that smoking and work experience variables were predictors of health-prom oting behaviors. So that health-promoting behaviors in smokers are 6 times less than non-smokers (OR: 6.79, CI95: -13.15-0.42), for one year increase in work experience, 7.7 more health-promoting behaviors (OR: 0.77, CI95: 0.09-1.46) and in illiterate people was very low compared to academics (OR: -59.61, CI95: -117.70-1.53). Conclusion: Considering the effects of some individual factors such as work experience and smoking on health-promoting lifestyle, we can conclude that educational programs to increase lifestyle awareness and its effects on physical and mental health as well as program implementation - Health education programs focus on increasing physical activity among employees are essential. © 2022 by the authors.
