ESD PROTECTION IN PRACTICE
Every workstation should be equipped with ESD protection in an ESD protective zone. Electrostatic charges are dissipated in a controlled manner via the working surface and grounding cable so that the workstation stays charge-neutral.
People are a primary source of electrostatic charges. As such, it is recommended that employees working in electronics manufacturing wear a wrist strap with a grounding cable and antistatic shoes. Desk chairs and stand-up seats should also have ESD protection.
Electronic components are best stored in closed ESD drawers, hinged-door cabinets as well as ESD shelving (Faraday cage) with appropriate ESD containers.
ESD-protected areas must be marked. In addition, it is advisable to indicate components that are at risk with appropriate signs or labels.
