Conducting Hazard Evaluations
of On-Site Anaerobic Digesters
and Related Systems

w/ Nellie J. Brown, MS, CIH, Cornell University
Tuesday, December 17th
0.1 CEU / 1 PDH Credits


You can reduce your operation's risk by conducting a straightforward but effective on-site hazard assessment. Join Nellie J. Brown of Cornell University to explore an efficient safety auditing protocol for assessing the hazards and risks of anaerobic digesters and related systems.

In this webinar we'll outline how to effectively observe and trace the process steps of manure collection, manure transport, blending of digester substrates, anaerobic digestion, solid-liquids separation, liquid effluent storage, and biogas distribution to either electricity generation or combustion. Within this discussion we'll explore the tasks involved for both operations and maintenance with an eye to identify current, missing, and needed control measures, performance and maintenance issues and opportunities, accident/injury/symptom histories, employee observations, and training needs.



Learning Objectives

After participation, attendees will receive instruction on and be able to:

  • Describe what is meant by the "hierarchy of controls"
  • Recognize potential confined spaces in their digester and biogas systems
  • List at least three major hazards of digester systems
Describe two alternative methods for performing maintenance tasks which avoid confined space entry.
