Workplace issues involving people are becoming increasingly complex with a landscape that involves HR, IR, PH&S and sometimes WorkCover elements.

Mapien provides tailored intervention and incident response when an issue occurs in the workplace, with easy to understand solutions and an integrative approach to problem resolution.

The Mapien Psychosocial Assessment Tool (MPAT) is our predictive risk assessment tool, providing deep insight into psychosocial hazards.

Mapien Psychosocial Assessment Tool (MPAT)

The Mapien Psychosocial Assessment Tool (MPAT) gives organisations an opportunity to understand how psychosocial hazards in the workplace are impacting their people. 

MPAT is a purpose built, predictive tool delivering deep insight into psychosocial hazards experienced at work and their subsequent wellbeing impact in the areas of psychological strain, burnout risk, and physical symptoms of reduced wellbeing.

A useful and reliable tool for measuring mental health and safety at work, MPAT maps the 14 different psychosocial hazards identified by Safe Work Australia. With the capacity to be adjusted to fit specific workplace needs, MPAT provides a numerical measure of psychosocial risks, making it valuable for understanding and addressing workplace mental health and safety concerns.

With the support of our workplace strategists and psychologists, MPAT helps you identify and take the most practicable steps towards a more mentally healthy workplace.


Whether proactively exploring the extent to which psychosocial hazards are impacting your workplace or responding to identified risks, MPAT brings a self-report survey option, coupled with Mapien’s expertise, to ethically, and effectively, gather, report, and unpack data.

The results bring confidence that your organisation is fulfilling its’ obligations to ensure your workplace is not psychologically harming your people.
