ESD Footwear or Foot Grounders

ESD Footwear or Foot Grounders are used as a method of grounding people via a conductive or dissipative floor. The personnel grounding devices can be used to ground operators when stood or when mobile whilst handling non-shielded ESD Sensitive Devices within the ESD Protected Area (EPA).
