About us

Static electricity can cause fires and explosions where flammable atmospheres such as solvent vapours or dust clouds can occur. In other environments, static electricity build-up on personnel can cause nuisance shocks. In some cases these could become a Health and Safety issue, for example where hot fluids are being handled and a static shock could cause inadvertent recoil.

NOTE: Static electricity is a highly variable phenomenon, and the assessment of hazard is a highly specialist activity. Expert advice should be sought before applying electrostatic techniques or preventative measures. Any suspected electrostatic hazard should be fully assessed by a competent consultant as a matter of the highest priority. Electrostatic Solutions accepts no liability for any incident arising from application of the information in this site.
