How to Move up the Safety Curve from Basic Clamps and Cables on a Budget

Protecting workers and company assets from ignitions caused by staticÂ- electricity can't be left to chance. In facilities where flammable and combustible products are processed, there's a very high probability that static electricity is generated by the movement of gases, liquids and solids. The risks of a fire or explosion caused by a discharge of static electricity...
