Personnel Grounding Strap

Personnel Grounding Strap

The operating requirements of certain processes can cause the loss of direct contact between the operator’s static dissipative safety shoes and the static dissipative flooring of the plant or facility.

For example, an operator may need to stand on a ladder to tip powder into a large mixer and in the process of moving to the ladder loses contact with the static dissipative flooring of the plant.

Under limited and controlled circumstances personnel grounding straps may be used.

It should be noted that grounding straps are not a substitute for static dissipative flooring or static dissipative footwear.

Grounding straps should only be used for rare occasions where process operators may lose contact between the soles of their static dissipative footwear and the plant floor.
