In Summary - 6-Point ESD Protection Checklist
In case you have question or the infographic is not displaying, here is a summary of each point on the ESD protection best practices checklist:
1. Control Plan - Having a control plan for an ESD protected area includes component and product sensitivity levels, ESD protection levels, daily routines, and maintenance procedures.
2. Flooring - Including a grounded ESD floor mat allows for convenient usage and movement of carts and chairs within your ESD-protected area.
3. Furniture - In order to guarantee proper ESD protection, all furniture in your designated ESD protected area must be grounded.
4. Personnel - You must also look out for those working in your ESD protected area. Wrist straps, for example, are the most effective way of grounding people working in an EPA.
5. Storing, Moving, Packing - Be sure to store ESD components in their original packages/packaging and mimize the transportation and movements of these components.
6. Cleaning & Testing - Protection requires ongoing inspection and maintenance. The regular cleaning of equipment with proper ESD detergent in an EPA helps in maintaining proper ESD protection.
