Working around electronics and electrical devices can carry a lot of different hazards with it. One of those hazards is that of electrostatic discharge or ESD. ESD includes spectacular electric sparks, but also less dramatic forms which may be neither seen nor heard, yet still be large enough to cause damage to sensitive electronic devices. Because of this it is encouraged by many businesses for their employees to use an ESD safe lotion.
ESD can cause a range of harmful effects of importance in industry, including methane gas and coal dust explosions, as well as failure of solid state electronics components such as integrated circuits. These can suffer permanent damage when subjected to high voltages. Clean rooms, static free areas, and other measures are taken to minimize the risk of any type of static buildup. With ESD safe lotions you can protect yourself from any static buildup quickly and easily.
Much like a hand sanitizer, the ESD safe lotions are used on the hands and rubbed into the skin. They will not contaminate printed circuit boards and some can relieve chapping, skin flaking, irritation and skin sensitivity caused by regular use of Latex and Nitrile gloves.
