Abstract This article discusses the main errors that can be made when evaluating psychosocial hazards. They may relate to different phases of the evaluation, including: misidentification of psychosocial risk factors; choice of inappropriate methodology and techniques; errors in planning and carrying out the fieldwork; errors in the analysis of results or in the report; errors during the development and implementation of an intervention programme; errors in the monitoring and control of the proposed measures.
