A cognitive mapping method was used to elicit mental models of psychosocial hazards at work. First, an outline of the theoretical basis of a mental model approach to psychosocial risk assessment is presented. We then demonstrate how a cognitive mapping method was used as an assessment tool for representing mental models of psychosocial hazards at work. Using cognitive maps of individuals (n = 35) from eight organisations and a detailed example of one of the participating organisations, we show how understanding mental models of psychosocial hazards at work can aid the assessment of psychosocial risk and the development and implementation of intervention programmes to reduce psychosocial hazards and harms.
