The workers of any company must be adequately protected and equipped with what is necessary to ensure their integrity, especially if there´s exposition to the risk of ignition in an explosive environment or where static electricity is the order of the day.
To know what preventive measures must occur in the work environment, we invite you to read the following article in detail, especially for your knowledge.
Static electricity damage (ESD)
We have already mentioned that a large amount of electrostatic discharge can be potentially dangerous for both the workers and the electronic products. These effects can be into three groups: serious accidents, annoyances, and product damage.
Serious accidents. They can occur when there is an effective source of ignition in an explosive atmosphere, causing the initiation of a fire or an explosion; This is why workers must use products that prevent electrostatic discharges, such as those in our catalog.
Inconvenience. In general, inconveniences do not represent a danger in themselves for the worker, although it will depend a lot on the work environment in which they work. For example, if the worker is doing work at height, the reaction to a shock can cause them to lose their balance resulting in a fatal end. Likewise, the constant static electricity can cause discomfort in the long-term worker.
Damage to products. Items are especially susceptible to damage if exposed to constant electrostatic discharge, such as:
Electronic equipment. Electrostatic discharge can cause damage, especially to integrated circuits.
Continuous productions (textile, paper, etc.). The electrostatic charges generated in this type of production can attract dirt or dust, incorrect stacking or packaging, or even cause traffic jams.
The transport of materials in solid-state (powders) or liquid. Electrostatic charges can cause blockages in the pipes and cause unscheduled breaks, low productivity, and poor quality of the final product.
The good news in all this information is that we can prevent all damage caused by static electricity on time, with products of the best quality and at the best price, such as those we propose in our extensive catalog.
