Abstract

We examine strategies for optimizing investment in ESD protection and trade-offs that can arise. Standard ESD measures require low expertise but may result in unnecessary equipment spend. Tailored EPAs may require higher expertise and greater training. ESD control measures and equipment used with inadequate understanding can fail to yield the potential benefits expected. Optimal ESD control results from understanding ESD threats and control, with effective implementation.
