Electrostatics – Code of practice for the avoidance of hazards due to static electricity

Executive summary

Code of Practice for avoiding ignition and electric shock hazards arising from static electricity.

Abstract

This Published Document is a code of practice for avoiding ignition and electric shock hazards arising from static electricity. The processes that most commonly give rise to problems of static electricity are described in detail. They include the handling of solids, liquids, powders, gases, sprays and explosives. In each case, the source and nature of the electrostatic hazard is identified and specific recommendations are given for dealing with them.

Basic information about the generation of undesirable static electricity in solids, liquids, gases, explosives, and also on persons, together with descriptions of how the charges generated cause ignitions or electric shocks, is given in annexes to this document.

This document is not applicable to the hazards of static electricity relating to lightning, to damage to electronic components, nor to medical hazards.
