Duration 23 mins.
While static electricity is mostly harmless, it can be hazardous in some environments where flammable or combustible mixtures are present. To reduce electrostatic hazards, it is important to understand how static electricity generates, accumulates, and discharges. This interactive course presents techniques for preventing static electricity from forming or accumulating to dangerous levels. Some common applications for conductive equipment such as bonding and grounding, as well as methods for handling nonconductive equipment and materials will also be discussed.
