In the present work the evaluation of the biological risk to which the personnel working in the areas of biomethanization in the urban waste treatment plants can be exposed is presented. To carry out the initial assessment of biological risk, the Biogaval method has been used as a reference method. The Biogaval method is a simplified way of assessing exposure to biological risk, and provides help to prioritize the application of preventive control measures. It is a methodology that allows quantifying and assessing exposures to biological agents in relation to the legally established requirements on the protection of workers against health risks and their safety. It is an instrument of interest aimed at estimating the magnitude of the risks that could not be avoided. As a support tool, the Biodat database has been used, which offers information on the possible presence of biological agents in different sectors of work activity. The methodology applied has proved to be useful and practical in the evaluation of the biological risks of the evaluated posts.
