Just wanted to start with a few things I always think about when I enter my work area/lab.
Any time I enter my work area/lab I will touch the metal door frame to ground myself and I also touch a few other things metal to help ground or discharge this is usually done right at the door.
I try not to drag my feet at all
No carpet in my work area or leading up to or anywhere around the work area.
I will try and ground myself several time threw out my work day or times in the room. Got into a habit even when I’m outside I try and ground myself.
Always put on a pair of gloves before I start anything. Cleaning, organizing or touching glass.
Remove gloves before leaving room.
New pair of gloves once I re enter room.
I try and always have a pair on that has proper grip. A good rubber sole so I don’t slip.
I know there are proper cloths for flammable lab area. I don’t have them yet and will be looking into getting some this next month.
As for now I try to ware pants and long sleeves. In times it’s hot in my lab it’s shorts and short sleeves.
I have a 12” exhaust fan in my room with 2 more in the room next to it. These are the spark proof/resistant fans from best value vac.
I know there is a bunch of things I can’t think of at this second but starting this I feel can really help some people
