In this talk, I will cover the three types of charging mechanisms that can generate static electricity and the seven different discharge types, before looking at where these can impact in a typical manufacturing environment and how they can be prevented. I aim for you to leave with a greater appreciation of electrostatic for you to be able to identify potential charging situations and be able to prevent or mitigate before a dangerous discharge occurs.
