Young immigrants aged ten to 17 years who had been living in Norway for one year or more participated in a survey about their use of different kinds of safety equipment. The figures were compared with the corresponding figures for Norwegian children and adolescents. The results showed that the young immigrants used safety equipment to a less extent than the Norwegian youngsters did. Furthermore, the immigrants reduced their use of safety equipment significantly from age 11 to age 15, as did the Norwegians. The amount of time the young immigrants had lived in Norway was significantly, although only slightly associated with use of safety equipment. Also the immigrants' attitude toward the Norwegian way of life was slightly related to whether they used safety equipment or not.
