Workstations – Ginger Hansel & Ted

The complexity of properly
installing workstations is often underestimated. On the ‘surface’, it appears
to be a simple installation of an ESD static dissipative mat or ESD hard
laminate. However, there are important issues learned from years of experience
that impact cost, durability, ESD performance, maintenance, and compliance
verification. A good ESD control workstation is the cornerstone of ESD program
management (EPM). Workstations used in processing ESD susceptible items are
intended to maintain a near-zero potential by providing ground paths for basic
components of the workstation and a connection point for personnel grounding
apparatus. The workstation should protect against charged device model (CDM)
ESD and human body model (HBM). This practical tutorial will teach you how to
set-up an effective ESD-controlled workstation that accomplishes these goals.
It will cover the selection and qualification of the required materials and how
to install these correctly. Other workstation issues will be discussed,
including the application of ionization, garment grounding, ESD chairs,
handling containers, tools, and compliance verification consistent with ESD

Learning Outcomes

Attendees will be able to:

– Set-up an
effective ESD-controlled workstation that will provide ground paths for mats,
people, fixtures, trays, and sensitive components.

– Avoid
costly mistakes when selecting and installing the components of the

– Implement compliance verification testing and troubleshoot
measurement challenges  – Identify real world problems in photos and
examples gathered during years of auditing
