  2. 2. 2 Electrostatic DischargeElectrostatic Discharge You may notice it as a spark:  from your finger to the door frame when you get out of the car  from your finger to any earthed metalwork - e.g. copier  when stroking a cat Electro- Static Discharge
  3. 3. 3 Electrostatic DischargeElectrostatic Discharge Causes:  Charge builds up when certain materials rub together  e.g. between your body and your clothes, and between one item and another  man-made fibres (e.g. Nylon) are worse than cotton  Damp air is slightly conductive, so the charge leaks away  Dry air is an insulator, so the charge builds up
  4. 4. 4 Electrostatic DischargeElectrostatic Discharge  Electronic components have tiny elements, so they are VERY easily damaged by electrical discharges.  Damage can occur even when there isn’t a spark.
  5. 5. 5 Electrostatic DischargeElectrostatic Discharge  NEVER touch electronic components or printed circuit boards.  NEVER open boxes or bags which have the ESD warning sign.  Anyone who needs to touch or work with electronic components MUST use an approved safety wristband and an earthed work-mat.
