Protect Your Equipment with Static Control

Oxygen Electronics

There are many fields of work where you might have concern for electrostatic discharge (ESD), especially when your employees work within a static-sensitive area. Taking precautions to protect both your equipment and employees from potentially dangerous ESD is essential to providing a safe work environment for all. Both small and large adjustments can help contain static problems in your work place, and StaticStop has a few modifications you should consider.

Dissipative clothes

Static control garment options, such as smocks, are often used to reduce the chance of static build-up. These suits must be completely closed in order to work effectively in your workspace.

ESD gloves

Conditional to the industry, gloves might be a necessity when operating or moving sensitive equipment. Just as ESD clothing, you must use gloves that prevent static as to not interfere or injure oneself while working.

Controlled environment

Often times, in these sensitive environments, its best to keep the humidity high because it is less conducive to static charges. Keeping your workspace between 40-60% humidity is often suggested.

Industrial ESD floor

Just as you can only build on a steady foundation, conducting static-sensitive work should be completed on an industrial static control floor. This is especially important if your employees must move around while they work, as to avoid damaging static voltage. StaticStop has an easy to install, interlocking ESD flooring option that is great for a number of industries that have static-sensitive work environments

Creating an ESD workstation is an investment worth making when it can prevent electrostatic problems. StaticStop offers peace of mind for businesses who are looking for a reliable, smart solution for their static concerns, all while contributing to LEED points.
