Static Discharge Awareness and Explosion Protection
For any person responsible for the safety of employees, colleagues, plant equipment and plant property, one of the most potentially confusing aspects of providing a safe operating environment is understanding and safeguarding against static discharge. In this webinar, given by Christopher Coughlan at Newson Gale, a Hoerbiger Safety Solutions Company, he discusses how to determine if your site’s manufacturing or handling processes have the potential to discharge static sparks into flammable or combustible atmospheres.
More often than not, static-caused fires and explosions result in expensive production downtime, legal and insurance costs related to personnel injuries, fatalities, and damage to company property. The overall cost of non-compliance can stretch far beyond potential “savings” achieved by ignoring the risk of electrostatic ignitions or by using non-compliant static control methods.
