Electrostatic Discharge Safety Training (Update Available)
This course will provide a basic understanding of static electricity, and how to provide protection from static electricity. The information in this course will focus on the identification, assessment, and control of static electricity for purposes of preventing fires and explosions.
Primarily engineering, safety, and maintenance personnel whose responsibilities include determining and correcting static issues. May also benefit managers, supervisors, and employees who work in areas where electrostatic discharge could result in fire, explosion, and/or damage to electrical equipment.
