Purpose: There is a paucity of contemporary evidence on the organizational (as opposed to operational) psychosocial hazard (OPH) exposures of UK police officers. The purpose of this study is to report on OPH exposures measured via an instrument developed by the UK government - the Management Standards Indicator Tool - among police officers sampled from an entire UK force. The study provides reference values for UK police officers’ OPH exposures, considers these in relation to government exposure targets, and examines the association between officers’ OPH exposures and perceived work-related stress.
