Process Protocols are special sets of master rules that make processes to work in suitable manners: effectively, safely, economically, etc. By following process protocols you can reach specific goals, such as prevent process fails, errors and upsets. For example process validation protocol is created to apply a series of tests designed to make sure that a specific process will not miscarry during the operation. This type of process protocol can be called in different ways, depending upon industry where it is utilized and laws prescribing it, but its purpose is always the same – to protect process participants from injury.
Process protocols are very often used in industries and cases where risk of human errors should be minimized, for example in hospitals, so there could be protocols prescribing specific frameworks for medical personnel to behave with patients in optimal manner, to diagnose their disorders promptly and with minimal risks to fail, and hence to seek appropriate treatment. In other words process protocols are tools for securing effectiveness and stability of process results without regard to who is the process performer in every specific case (so a negative input from a performer can be minimized and neutralized through task simplification and adherence to procedures).
