On-demand Webinar: Understanding Electrostatic Hazards

Electrostatic discharges can act as a source of ignition that may result in fire or explosion. This can occur when materials come into contact and move relative to other materials or by induction.

For many process industries such as paint and powder spray booths, and the food industry, electrostatic risks are often poorly understood and can materialise in unexpected ways.

This webinar provides an understanding of the process, products and equipment needed to avoid the ignition of flammable gas, vapour, or dust clouds alongside general electrostatic hazards in the workplace.
