Personnel Grounding

The grounding clamp and wrist strap assembly provides operators working in hazardous locations with an additional layer of protection against fires or explosions caused by static electricity.

Through their own movements people can generate large amounts of static charge if they are not grounded. In some cases, as much as 30,000 volts can be carried by people who are completely unaware that they themselves are the potential source for an electrostatic spark discharge that could ignite a flammable atmosphere.

If the operating requirements of certain processes cause the loss of direct contact between the operator’s static dissipative safety shoes and the static dissipative flooring of the plant, personnel grounding strap assemblies provide an added layer of protection to ensure the operator is grounded via the plant or bonded to the equipment they are interacting with.
