On-demand: 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.

What you’ll learn:

  • Understanding how electrostatic charges are created in the industry
  • Types of discharge and their relevance to explosive atmospheres
  • How to identify and mitigate electrostatic charges in order to mitigate risk

This webinar is best for:

  • Safety Engineers
  • Process Managers
  • Environmental Health Safety Specialist
  • Risk Engineers
  • Process Engineers
  • EHS Specialists, Managers, Supervisors and Engineers
