Think of Static as Contamination

Damage caused by invisible and undetectable events can be understood by comparing ESD damage to medical contamination of the human body by viruses or bacteria. Although viruses and bacteria are invisible, they can cause severe damage even before you can detect their presence. A defense against this invisible threat is sterilization.

As an employee, the hidden threat of electrostatic discharge or ESD should be of great concern to you. ESD damage can significantly reduce your company's profitability. This may affect your profit sharing, your company's ability to compete in the market place and even your employment. Everyone likes to take pride in their work, but without proper ESD controls, your best efforts may be destroyed by static electricity that you can neither feel nor see.
