[Excerpt] This protocol is intended to be used by health and safety experts and those with expertise in anaerobic digesters/systems. It was adapted from basic elements of both traditional job hazard analysis and process hazards analysis (particularly hazard and operability analysis) techniques, and is intended to overcome some of the limitations of both methods for someone conducting a site walk-through consisting of less than one day of available time.
