In the tradition of the psychological investigation there are some antecedents dedicated to the evaluation of the dissonance between attitude and observable behaviour. Some works in ecology showed that only some subjects are able to maintain a favourable attitude towards the waste recycling and also to do it in an efficient form. The majority thinks that it is a good action but they do not exert it. From this concept, in this work we establish the idea of preventionist responsible behaviour to define those subjects that such cognitive dissonance does not exist and that they maintain favourable attitudes towards the prevention and at the same time they exert the behaviours derived from that attitude. We compare a group of preventionist workers with a control group with nonpreventionist behaviour in a series of psychological variables in order to establish a differential profile (case control study). Data were collected between October 2006 and January 2007. The results showed a clear profile in variables like control, neuroticism, monitoring rules, etc.
