INTRODUCTION

Movement of people and materials in the work environment is frequently cited as a major source of static electricity. This routine movement, particularly the contact and separation of shoes with the floor, generates voltages on personnel as high as several thousand volts. Similarly, the movement of carts or other equipment will generate electrostatic charge. This technical report will review the use of floor materials to dissipate electrostatic charge. It provides an overview on floor coverings, floor finishes, topical antistats, floor mats, paints and coatings. It also covers a variety of other issues related to floor material selection, installation and maintenance
